Got Calcium?

When reading up on chicken snacks, Shawn came across a suggestion that the girls might like a little cottage cheese from time to time. They need plenty of calcium to produce strong eggs and prevent them from becoming egg bound.

As you can see, Blackberry and the girls are big fans of the cottage cheese. They scarfed it all down before I could run and grab the camera.We also add ground oyster and egg shells to their food for the same reason.

For other fun chicken snack ideas, I turn to my friend Lauren, author of Scratch and Peck. Lauren has an uncanny ability to capture the essence of her girls through her drawings and witty stories. I look forward to every new blog post. Check her out and enjoy!
