New to chickens raising. How is this product is used exactly? Do you mix it in the food or just throw it on the ground?

Asked by: Italiangal
Thanks for choosing Purina. If you are feeding one of our formulated layer diets as the sole product, you should not need the oyster shell. However, you may provide this free choice next to their feed during the laying season. Or, if you choose to mix it in, you may at 1 lb. per 20 lbs. of feed.

I was wondering about using this product in my garden. I have read that ground oyster shells also provide calcium to plants such as tomatoes and peppers. I was just wanting to make sure there was no additives, that it was pure oyster shells.

Asked by: 7Bobby7
Thanks for your inquiry. While we cannot speak of its efficacy in gardening, we can tell you that it is indeed just crushed oyster shells.

Can I use these shells for the birds? I know they say egg shells are great for birds because of the protein they need, just wondered if these would be the same.

Asked by: Kandi Brown
This is a great calcium source for all chickens, turkeys, gamebirds and waterfowl. I am not certain what type of bird you are referencing. But, any of the fowl that needs additional calcium could benefit.
