    Hi all,
    I want from you to post some sources of calcium that will be acceptable by chickens except oyster shell.
    and please tell me some sources of protein ( especially grains )
    I want to feed my chickens a balanced-natural food to get natural eggs.

    PS: rate my English cuz I'm Swiss and trying to be good english speaker )[​IMG]

    Cats Critters Completely Indecisive

    I save eggshells bake them till their brittle and crush them up and give them to the flock.
    please tell me some sources of protein ( especially grains )

    Bugs, meat
    rate my English cuz I'm Swiss and trying to be good english speaker

    I think your English is pretty good. Although here is how we might have said what you said:

    You said:

    We might have said:

    Please post some sources of calcium that chickens can eat besides oyster shells and please tellbme some sources of protien (especially grains). I want to feed my chickens a balanced-natural food to get natural eggs.

    Really, just about perfect.

    As for protien: Bugs, worms and cat food
    Calcium: I agree baked, crushed egg shell.

    If you free range, however, the chickens will likely find their own.
