    My hens get the choice of oyster shell (To see if they need that calcium or don't.)Recently it rained and I have my Oyster shell sitting in the wide open on a brick.It got wet,and I was just curious,will this harm them?

    I am going to say no it will not harm them. I have oyster shell in several locations around my pens for chickens, ducks and geese. It always gets wet in the rain or the heavy morning dew and they have used it that way for over a year with no harm.
