Reviews From Pet Chicken Parents
As always, thank you for sharing! Treats for Chickens’ chicken parents rely on your honest feedback. -Dawn 🧡
Absolutely love this product for my ducks! I have battled with soft shelled eggs in my Pekin ducks for quite sometime. Treats for chickens came across my Instagram account 3 years ago, I took a shot and landed on gold! Since using this product my soft shelled eggs have dropped dramatically. They love it! This is my go to product, fast delivery, and let me tell you..the owner is the fluffy butt Queen of all things chickens (and a majorly kick a$$ human BTW) but she really nailed it with this product. Her products are VERY versatile! I highly recommend this product for your feathered friends! Plus the hubby loves the free gummy bears that come with our order! Win win in my opinion!
I definitely recommend this product as a calcium source. My chickens love it, from my bantams to big girls, and it helps to produce some strong and healthy shells.
My girls definately prefer the flaked oyster shell - - the won't touch anything else. They generally have nice strong shells but I do like to make sure it stays that way with a supplement of the flakes. Will be ordering again soon - there is no other product on the market that compares.
New user with new layers. My chickens definitely prefer the flakes over the rock type shells. I've been mixing them and they pick the flakes out! I put the oyster flakes on subscription delivery so they will always have them. Thanks Dawn!
First time I have ordered this oyster shell. My chickens only eat the flaked, not the rocks you find in the stores. My chickens love this flaked oyster shell. I will be ordering this again!
