    Any farm/feed store that sells chicken feed should have them. Or I've actually seen bags on amazon.com too!

    I found oyster shells at the Co-Op, but now I'm not sure how much to give them. The package was not readable and what little I could read said add a certain amount to a ton of food. I don't buy it by the ton! lol

    You can just put it out separate in its own bowl and let them eat as needed.
