Give your chickens some extra bite!

Chickens don't have any teeth, so in order to extract maximum goodness from the food they eat they need grit. Not just any old grit either, a hard sharp flint is best - of about 3-5mm diameter (like the ones used in stone age dentistry). This handy tub of mixed grit also contains soluble calcium (in the form of oyster and other sea shells) which will ensure your hens only lay the robust egg shells like the ones your grandfather has probably told you about. This packet would last two hens a couple of months, just add a handfull to the feed once a week.

Does What It Says On The Tin - Anne,

My girls love it, I use two bags at a time to half fill the large container I use and it lasts quite a while. You can see various mixed grit including oyster shell, it looks a good fair mix.

I have this grit permanently set up in girls pen. They nibble at it most days - the eggs that I have from them have fantastic shells.

Difficult to get too excited over grit!! However, this grit really is lovely. It is like a miniature beach in a bag!!
