ok i think this came from a leghorn or a BO both over 2 yrs why did it happen age?
nothing huh? ok I will say i will give her extra oyster shells ya
Is it still really hot where you are? It can be calcium absorption problem or heat stress or just a glitch in the system and a one-time thing. Give unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar in their water to help with calcium absorption, two or three tablespoons to a gallon.
ok I do the ACV but someone on here said only do it once a week true? It is not hot at all Im cold! I just got them so not sure what there eating habits were but here they get a bunch of good stuff
No, you can do it all the time. I usually have ACV in at least one or two of their waterers. They like it. If you dont already do it, give them a bowl of plain yogurt with active cultures a couple of times a week as well.
Now i looked for that today and none of them said active cultures what the heck am i looking for
Oh, it's in very small print on the ingredient list. Most have it these days. The major brands all seem to.
Stonyfields plain yogurt is excellent. I use it for the starter to make my own yogurt. (got the recipe here)
ok thanks I will go get it today! I dont want anymore of thoes nasty eggs!
If you catch them, they're still edible...I've eaten a couple of Obelisk's soft shelled eggs. You just have to use them quicker than regular eggs.
When softshelled eggs happen, I put the ACV in the water and put out the oystershell calcium.
I buy the ACV at Whole Foods and the Oyster Shell in the bird section of Petco and PetSmart.
