Oyster Shell is a premium source of calcium for building stronger egg shells.
Provide oyster shell in a separate dish once your birds start laying eggs. Always offer fresh, clean water.
Your girls will start laying around 20 weeks of age, so if you plan to supplement their calcium source, have a bag of Mile Four Oyster Shell ready to go around this time.
Mile Four Oyster Shell is a mixture of coral calcium and crushed oyster shell.
