    You can try adding crushed oyster shell to the feed or another calcium type . You can also put chunks of dirt and grass in the pen or turn them out in the day.You may have to separate them from the flock,the others will start eating them to after a while.

    They are separated there is about a foot of snow outside so they can't go out.
    I filled an egg with mustered and gave it to them.
    They have grit in there feed.
