    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 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. … more

    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 Previously this was an excellent, high-quality product.

This type of shell IS NOT widely recommended for poultry due to its hardness and riskier shape.

    Smells like seashells!

    By on

    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 on

    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!

    If you’re looking for quality oyster shells instead of those over-sized excuses give this stuff a try. My hens LOVE this to meet their calcium needs.

    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.
