 Then they definitely need.... "the oyster shell in a separate container at all time in the coop."

But new layers dropping softshells is pretty normal despite having OS available......

.......I wouldn't be too concerned, tho it's always kind of a bummer.

Yes Ive been giving them oyster shells as they will take it.  I have a normal gravity feeder with grit in it.  Every couple days I dump a handful of oyster shells in there.

What kind of feed are you providing?

Agrees^^^

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
