    So, what is your question?
    All chickens need insoluble grit.
    Birds that are actively building egg shells need extra calcium - either in the form of layer feed or supplemental crushed oyster shell.

    Put the oyster shells in a container that they can always get to, and than mix scratch grains and oyster shells and toss them in their run, they will love scratching for them.
