Roosters and Calcium

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I feed my chickens (4 hens and 1 rooster) Purina Flock Raiser. I found out that i should offer oyster shells free choice for my hens. Im not able to get that atm so i took about 12 egg shells and dried them in the oven then crushed them into very small peices. Then i fed them to my hens and mixed a little in there food my question is will the egg shells be to much for my rooster? If so ill delute the egg shells with more feed. Thank you. smile.png

I would offer it separately rather than mixing it into the feed. The rooster should not want to eat much of it.
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.
