    I was wondering what methods others use to supply grit and Oyster shell to chickens. I am trying to keep them from wasting it. Here is the best idea I have come up with so far.
    I took a short piece of plastic rain gutter put the caps in the ends with a couple screws and then screwed the gutter to the wall. Then I put the grit and shell in the gutter.
