    How much do I feed my girls? Do I just mix it in with their feed or put it in a separate bowl? And can the ones not laying yet have some too, or is that too much calcium for them?

    TIA!

    I think the ones not laying shouldn't eat any just yet.
    I put mine in a seperate bowl.

    Yeah, just put it in a bowl on the side, the girls will eat it when they need it.

    Cool thank you! I'm wondering if that is maybe why she isnt laying anymore? I guess we will see. She is scarfing it up now as we speak!
