Oyster Shell Feeder

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Ok... I've decided to switch from layer crumble to a flock raiser-type and supply some separate oyster shell and trust the hens to know when they need the added calcium.  I'm curious how people supply the shell.  I've got the chicken's feed in a feeder that's hanging about back height from the ground.  What's the best way to offer shell that keeps waste, spoilage, soiling, etc. to a minimum?

I punched a few holes the bottom of a small margarine tub and tacked it onto a post in their run. It allows just a small amount of oyster (about 1/2 cup) so I can easily keep it fresh. Works fine.

I have an old bunny feeder, its perfect for oyster shell.
