Essential supplement for bird health and wellbeing
What is it?
Fine Oystershell Grit is the ground up shells of oysters which is an excellent source of soluble and non-soluble calcium.
How does it help?
Birds need grits in their digestive tract to help grind up their food and aid digestion and nutritional uptake. In addition, birds’ diets are often poor in calcium, for example sunflower hearts and peanuts are low in calcium, and calcium is needed for optimal bird health. Grits help digest food but soluble calcium is also absorbed by the body leading to stronger bone strength, muscle development and crucially, boosts eggshell quality.
Add a generous pinch of Fine Oystershell Grit each time you’re filling your feeders and your birds will appreciate your care.

Sean says: “Modern gardens do not offer many chances for birds to find natural sources of soluble calcium. Combined with the poor phosphorous to calcium balance in many bird foods, adding fine oystershell grit is a sensible and safe option.”
