    calcium can be added in quit a few ways. One of the most common are giving oyster shells in a separate container or mixed in with the feed to boost calcium.

    You want to give them free-choice Oyster Shell, which can be purchased in a feedstore, or online.

    You can also bake and crush egg shells so they are not recognizable.
