    Hello,my seramas arent real good egg layers to begin with,but tonight i found a soft shelled egg.They eat flock raiser and they get oyster shell and grit.Is the regular oyster shell to big for the seramas?should i try to grind it some or is there another kind i can give them?
    Thanks for any help..

    It's probably just a glitch in the egg laying machinery, not a calcium problem. Mine lay a soft shell or an undersized egg occasionally. Remember we never see the mistakes in store bought eggs.

    I've never had anything as small as a Serama, but my oyster shell has some pretty small pieces, so I would think so.
