The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

Hi @BBQJOE! Ok, so my girls' eggs have always been beautiful (I have Easter eggers & olive eggers that lay pale blue, sea green and olive eggs because their small pea combs make them less likely to develop frostbite during cold Colorado winter nights).  After switching to the Purina Layena Oyster Strong feed, I have noticed a distinct strengthening of their shells.  While it's always disappointing to discover that an egg has accidentally been stomped in the coop, or damaged during handling, my two main concerns are addressed by the Oyster Strong System feed. My first concern is the girls eating their own eggs due to poor calcuim intake.  While oyster shell offered in a separate container is supposed to help them self-regulate their calcuim intake (instinctively eating it when their reserves are low), I have one girl who refuses to touch it.  I think she may also be a raccoon trapped in a chicken body because she is forever getting into absolutely ANYTHING that could be potentially dicey, but that's a different issue alltogether.  With the oyster shell blended into the feed, the little rascal gobbles it down and is none the wiser.  The main concern this feed addresses is preventing my girls from laying broken eggs (Egg Peritonitis).  This can cause a dangerous infection or even death.  With the guaranteed intake of calcuim via the Oyster Strong System feed, it is easier to avoid this potentially fatal situation.  A side perk of using the Purina Layena Oyster Strong System Omega-3 feed is that every egg is packed with 225mg of flax seed derived Omega-3 fatty acid, which provides a wide variety of health benefits. :)

Thanks for looking out for me @wdwendyd!  The official thread wasn't showing on the main challenge page when I posted, so I made my own.  I have gone back and reposted on the official thread :)
