DIY Calcium supplement for Backyard Chickens

No More Floppy Chicken Eggs!

If chickens don't consume enough calcium in their diet, their egg shells can become floppy and weak. There's a simple solution!

Giving your chickens a calcium supplement is important. They'll eat what they need, so I always give them egg shell calcium!

How to make  an egg shell calcium supplement for chickens


Gather Lots of Egg Shells

Gather as many egg shells as you can. I keep them in a bowl until I have collected a large batch.


Crush the Egg Shells

Crush all of the egg shells with a meat tenderizer or heavy potato masher.


Bake Crushed Egg Shells

Spread the crushed egg shells out on a baking pan and bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 8 minutes.
