I have a 1 1/2 year old hen, she's been laying regular every day eggs for a year now. I ran out of my oyster shell, went to buy more and the store CLOSED! so I got some at another feed store, not the same brand, this is more powdery and whiter. She doesn't eat it as much as she did the old brand. I've been using it for a few months now and have noticed a few thin spots on her eggs, now she's not laying as frequently and when she does, she's been eating the eggs. I'm thinking she just doesn't like this brand and that could be why she's having the thin spots, etc... and why she now feels the need for more calcium. SO, I ordered a bag from McMurray hatchery, hoping she'll like this stuff, but until it gets here in a few days, would it harm her to offer her a human calcium tablet?
Don't want her to have any issues since she's obviously wanting calcium.
