Treats for Chickens supplement, Limestone Grit– an Online Eggsclusive.

Here’s what you need to know: chickens of all ages need grit to help them with digestion. As chickens do not have teeth, they need grit  (little rocks) to help break down and digest their feed. The Great Oyster Shell Storage from mid-2020 to mid-2022. Due to that shortage, Treats for Chickens found a solution. Drumroll........ 100% calcium carbonate that's been crushed into small little bits of grit.  This is not pebbles or tumbled coral. The good news is that Limestone aka Calcium Carbonate is high in calcium, very high = 34%. Yes, you heard us right! Limestone is incredibly rich in natural calcium, which your flock members need to properly lay all those beautiful eggs and to restore calcium during molt and the off-laying season.

Limestone Grit will include two, 10lb bags + FREE SHIPPING on this item onlyIf Limestone is ordered with other items, full shipping fee will be charged.

And big shout out to those that reached out to San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control! Thank you for being guards to the chicken community.
