    i have a jar of this... it is called Rep-Cal- it is used for reptiles..
    it is calcium with vitamin d3 added.. it is a powder can i sprinkle a little bit on their food? it says it is from 100% natural phosphorus- free oyster shells( calcium carbonate)..

    If it's 100% oyster shells, I don't see why you couldn't mix in into their food or sprinkle it something. The only challenge may be dosing it so that they don't get too much.

    i have read and reread the container and the only thing that is added is the vit D... it seems to be very finely crushed shells...
    maybe i will try a little bit of it on some pasta they love that [​IMG]

    What happened with using the Rep-Cal? Do you still feed it to your chooks and what type of measurement do you use?
