I have a question regarding the use of oyster shells. The bag states you mix 1 pound of shells with 10 points of feed. I have seen threads where people are giving straight oyster shells to their pullets. I just want to confirm that this is okay. I have done the mixture ration with their feed, and I give them a scratch in their run each day can I add oyster shells to this as well? We are still experiencing egg eating. We have ceramic eggs in the nesting boxes, put up curtains on the outside of the nesting boxes; drastically reduced the amount of bedding in the nesting boxes to allow the eggs to roll around. We try to collect the eggs as quickly as possible but have no idea when they lay the eggs. They "sing" all the time with nothing. We have found a few outside untouched. I actually found a chicken in the process of eating an egg the other day. The eggs we are collecting vary in size but all the shells seem hard so I am not sure it is a shell issue. Extremely frustrating. as we go days without an egg. We have 10 RIR hatched 4/23. got our 1st egg 8/29. In all we have collected about 8 eggs in 3 weeks. We go days without an egg. I don't believe all are laying yet. They have an enclosed run so there really is no place they can "hide" an egg. We are new to this so any advise is appreciated. One frustrated mamma.
