    I bought some Nutrena laying crumb because my chicken started laying on Monday. On the bag it states that Oyster shell or ground limestone must be fed at the onset of lay in addition to NatureWise Layer Feed.

    Why am I buying laying feed if I still have to add calcium?

    I use Agway layer pellets. I always give mine calcium chips.

    I give the nutrena layer pellets and then have a seperate container that they have access to that containes oyster shell. If they want some they get some if not they don't. It keeps it simple.
