At what age should quai; chicks be given oyster shell?
Joe, I thought the same thing until one day I started getting not one, but several soft shell eggs. I have a small feed cup that hangs on the inside of the cage that I keep a supply of oyster shell. Cages with males don't get the oyster shell as it is unhealthy for them. I remember 2Crows mentioning it once, and if she said it, then it's worth following.I never give my quail any oyster shells. Their feed has enough calcium, and they never show any symptom of calcium deficiency
