About

Details

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.”

Q: What time of year should I be feeding the Oystershell Grit?

A: Spring is when the birds need the extra calcium to aid egg production. Just sprinkle a little in with your seeds or mixes.

Q: Will adding Fine Oyster Shell Grit hurt the birds throats?

A: Part of birds natural diet allows them to have grit, as this will give your garden visitors an extra boost of calcium that they need to produce eggs. The birds' gullet is especially designed to give them this benefit.
