Hi my fellow chicken people,
I was wondering if I need to provide my chickens with oyster shell or any other calcium suppliments. They are currently on a commercial layers mash and they also have free range during the day. I should add that they have not laid a single egg as yet despite having a huge settling in period. They arrived at my humble abode on the 1st of March. Mind you, they did catch a cold and are on day 4 of antibiotics today.
I wonder if one of the reasons they have not yet laid an egg is because they are lacking calcium???????????
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
They should always have some shellgrit available too.
have they stopped sniffling with the antibiotics?
Yes, they have finally stopped sneezing. I have cleaned the water containers out of antibiotics now that they have had the course for the stipulated 5 days. Back to garlic in the water now. They have shellgrit as well. Lets hope it all goes well now.
