Those that give sunflower seeds do you get them with or with out the shells?
without- if they had shells, wouldn't they go down hard?
with the shells good for them..my bantams love them..
with shells....good for them heard it keeps them from being egg bound...my chickens love em
I buy it without shells, but it's a lot cheaper with the shells Wild birds break open the shells to get to the nut meat, so I guess that's why I get the sunflower hearts. But I'm sure a chicken gizzard would have no problems breaking down the shells...
My girls have been eating them in the shells since they were babies...gave them sand as grit back then...now they have regular grit to help grind them up. They are addicted to them!
mine are without shells and they are cheaper with the shell. I think nutritionally it is no different, but they would find them w/ shells in the wild wouldn't they?
with shells, of course!
Mine are given with shells...
Add me to the "with shells" group. My birds are free ranged and have access to a lot of natural "grit".
