Description

Help your laying hens be their most egg-cellent with Small Pet Select Oyster Shell Chicken Food. Laying eggs requires a lot of calcium—this all-natural oyster shell feed helps to give mama hens some extra calcium when they need it most. Since oyster shells are digested at a different rate from normal feed, the calcium will be available overnight—the time when hens usually build eggshells. These thinner-crushed shells are ideal for feeding on their own or mixed into your hens’ usual feed. And aside from helping to create strong eggs, the calcium in this supplemental feed also promotes healthy plumage.

Key Benefits
  • Crushed oyster shells are a great source of supplemental calcium for laying hens, providing extra when they need it most.
  • Helps increase the strength of eggshells and the quality of your hens’ eggs.
  • Promotes healthy plumage in chickens, ducks or other waterfowl.
  • The thinner shells are ideal for feeding alone or mixing into your hens’ feed.
  • Made from 100 percent, all-natural and GMO-free flaked crushed oyster shells.

    WARNING - NOT OYSTER SHELL!!!

    By Kris on Aug 10, 2021

    Previously this was an excellent, high-quality product. Following the oyster shell shortage it was out of stock for months. I was thrilled to find it recently back in stock and ordered 50 lbs only to find it is crushed seashells and/or clamshells and NOT the softer and more digestible flaked oyster shell. This type of shell IS NOT widely recommended for poultry due to its hardness and riskier shape. Contacted Small Pet Select who verified this was a huge judgement error by the warehouse and they have received many complaints. Chewy issued a full refund.

    Practically overnight results

    By Stevie on Aug 22, 2021

    I could tell that my girls were somewhat calcium deficient by how rough and thin their shells were, but once I accidentally dropped a cracked eggshell meant for the non-chicken compost into their run and they went wild for the bits, I realized I couldn't ignore their needs any longer and immediately ordered this bag of oyster shell. It arrived to my rural location in days, and practically overnight I could see the difference in their eggs. A little bit goes a long way (I've just been sprinkling a little bit on top of their feed every day), and it's well worth adding to their diet.

    Smells like seashells!

    By Jmart on Aug 19, 2021

    We had originally used pelleted oyster shell... I think from Manna, but the girls didn't seem to touch it. It was little small white crumbles... like chalk. I ordered this on a whim and was super impressed to see this was actual crunchy oyster shell. It sounds weird, but my kids and I loved smelling the open bag because it reminded us of the beach (not a fishy smell, but an ocean/salty smell). The girls have been eating this more than the other stuff we've used and we got our first egg a few days ago! Nice hard shell too!

    Great product-Great price

    By Joey on Aug 8, 2021

    I had been on a subscription program for a similar oyster shell product. They had to discontinue this service due to product unavailability until at least September. Went to the hard white stone type oyster shell and knew this wasn’t the best I could do for my ducks. I saw this and decided why not? This is the thin, flaky shell I was looking for. Cheaper than my previous subscription, which also charged nearly as much for shipping as the product itself. Try this, I don’t think you’ve disappointed!

    By love on Aug 3, 2021

    We have tired other oysters shells from other companies. These are by far the best ones. ‘Y hens eggs are stronger and so pretty. Highly recommend.

    Great stuff!

    By PoppiesMom on Apr 15, 2021

    This is sooo much better then the calcium shaped rocks that you buy at the feed stores. You can see that this is real oyster shells. My ladies get this in a separate container as free feed. Their main food is a 20% all flock, not a layer feed. They eat what they need of this oyster shell, and they are laying big, wonderful HARD shelled eggs. Never have problems with soft shells. Highly recommended.

    try it. you'll like it!

    By MsLubner on Apr 28, 2021

    I got few pullets and when they started to lay, I was getting soft-shelled eggs. I bought some of this here poultry supplement and it done it, fixed those eggs up real nice. Yesterday, I got solid-shelled eggs. A couple of them was bigger than they'd ever laid before.

    Why Such A Big Increase In Price?

    By SusieC on Apr 6, 2021

    I really like this product but was shocked that it has tripled in price. I like the flaked oyster shell better than Manna Pro’s product but will have to continue to buy from them. Will buy this product again if the price drops back down to a reasonable amount.

    Convenience!!

    By Klandon on Mar 7, 2021

    It is so great that Chewy carries supplies for farm animals too. We have bought cat food, toys and treats often but this was a first for us! Oyster shell for our beautiful chickens!
