Congrats on your new arrivals.
Are they going to be chicks when you get them?.... If so then you can feed them Starter....or Starter/grower. At this age they don't need extra oyster shell It is already in the feed.
If they are already Big Girls and laying eggs then you need to feed them Layer feed either crumbles or pellets. ( some like crumbles better)
And Also sometimes it helps to have oyster shell in a free choice feeder by it's self if they need it they will eat some.
If they will be eating anything else (like treats or going outside) then you will need to provide chick grit or big girl grit depending on their age.
