Egg shells for chicks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Okay, so I have read all about giving egg shells back to hens.

 

I have 11 chicks (ages 3 weeks through 8 weeks aproximately) right now and today I am making several large egg casseroles.  I will have 4 dozen egg shells from this process.  Can I / Should I: grind up the shells an mix them in with their food or offer as a treat?  OR, are they to young and this calcium isn't good for them.

 

thanks in advance!

They are getting more than enough calcium in their starter/grower.
