    I’ve never seen my poultry over indulging in oyster shell. I keep it out all the time. I just put it in a separate container from feed a they use it as needed.

    Plus how do we know if our birds are needing something extra? Egg shell are one way. I keep out oyster shell year round since I have some that lay year round they only use the oyster shell when they need it.

    Thanks Sumi I know this is chicken article but poultry is poultry. Any idea how much calcium is too much and how they would get it? @sumi talking about oyster shell and wondering if anyone’s poultry has over eaten it. Mine haven’t.

    It is probably just end of the season, as others have said, but it won’t hurt them to stop the peas for a week or two and see if it helps.
