So my girls are about 11 weeks old, in the coop, it's all going well. They're still on their starter feed. Was told to keep then on this for another 10 weeks? When they start laying I'm to switch and I've been told to then add the shell. Okay. But they forage a lot. Eating a bunch of bugs and all that goodness. Do they need oyster shell for that?
