I have 14 chickens free range in a 20 metre by 10 shed this is how i manage them

1.FRESH STRAW AND HAY IN NEST BOXES FOR HENS

2. MAKE SURE NO ILLNESSES IN FLOCK IF ANY THING CONTRACTS FROM NOSE OR EYES CULL THE IFFECTED 1 TAKE NO CHANCES

3.HAVE GOOD FOOD CONTAINERS COVERED OR HANGING SO CHICKENS CAN NOT POO ON THE FEE AND SAME GOES WITH WATER

4.HAVE AN AREA WERE THEY CAN ROAM AND PICK ABOUT ALL DAY (GRITE IS IMPORTANT FOR EG SHELL STRUCTURE)

5.IF YOU LET YOUR CHICKENS OUT FOR 1 TO 2 HOURS A DAY MAKE SURE YOU WATCH FOR EGGS THEY CAN LAY THEM ANYWHERE

6 LAST BUT NOT LEAST HAVE A GREAT TIME WITH YOUR FLOCK:)

I think what you mean is that calcium is important for egg shell structure. Grit is used in the gizzard to grind up food and is not the same thing as calcium supplements (usually oystershell).
