Grit and Oyster Shell?

Recommended Posts

Well, chicken grit will almost certainly contain oyster shell. However, you can also buy oyster shell on its own. I find the best places to go are the 'country stores' - the sort of places that sell feed and bedding for horses and generally sell chicken products too. Theirs will generally come in sacks labelled 'chicken grit with oyster shell' or 'pure oyster shell'.

These will generally be much cheaper than in pet shops. Also, the stuff in pet shops can sometimes be very fine - more suited to budgerigars than chickens. Good luck.
