    Ok as a kids we never gave them oyster shells. But i found out about 2 weeks ago that if you feed your hens oyster shells when they start laying that they will give better quality eggs. Now i want to know if this is true.

    Oyster shells are for the calcium they need to have hard shells, so yes they will be better quality eggs
