    I have two Bantam Aracauna. I believe that one is about 2.5 months and the other is about 3.5 months old. I am getting five more chicks in about a month. Should I start offering oyster shells to them? I am hesitant to buy a bag of it because I will only need it for the two girls for the next four or five months. I remember that we used to give our Cockatiels, Budgies and Finches cuttle bones that we hung in the cage. Would these work for Bantams? Would there be any reason you would not want to give them to chickens if you planned to eat their eggs?
    Thanks,
    Julie
