Well, I'll give you my opinion (I'm usually wrong), no, you do not. Where they go out in a pond snails, bugs, roots on plants are probably enough for their systems through sozzling.
Wait for a proffesional to answer.
With the use of Layena- I THINK, it has the calcium our hens need. So check out your layer pellets and see if they already have calcium in them.

Good luck!
