New items at Wriggle Wrigglers

Oyster Grit, 6kg bag

Oyster Grit, 6kg bag £9.90
If there’s one thing that birds don’t get from eating clean, graded food from a birdtable it’s all that dirt and grit that they pick up from foraging in the wild. This finely ground grit helps put that back into their diet. Just mix a little into the food you offer: a little goes a long way and helps them digest their food. The grit helps grind down the food the hens eat because as you may well know, chickens don’t have teeth. Hens also need enough calcium in their diet to form the shells on their eggs. Lack of calcium = soft shelled eggs. Provide oyster grit in their pen or put some in a small food bowl. This will help them lay hard-shelled eggs and is an essential part of their diet.
