    Hey there,

    Have had our [3] chickens for over a month now and loving them:) They each have their own personality and are just great. They are producing us anywhere from 2-3 eggs a day. So that leads me to my question. . .

    I am wondering what other options (food wise of course)are available for calcium for them besides their own eggs and ground oyster shell? And can they have too much calcium?

    Thanks for the help and any and all replies!

    avoid those with high oxalic acid content... I give mine yogurt (active culture , not the desert kind) free choice...
