I ordered chicken nipples and was browsing, the nipples was the only thing I ordered so far. Basically I was just being lazy. I will probably stop by the feed store when I actually need it, but it was good for referencing prices. I work nights so I'm notoriously lazy when my days off come to their end.Apyl said:I don't given either to my flock. They get there grit from our sandy dirt and i crush egg shells for their calcium.
As for grit, they need when fed anything other than feed. Calcium is given at laying age. Curious though, why are you ordering it? Doesn't that get pricey?
Thanks for that suggestion, anything to keep costs down will make the husband happy.Righteousrich said:Wash out the egg shell and let dry well before crushing them. Add to feed for calcium. I only give them grit if they are confined. Otherwise they find when free ranging.
