Oyster Shell Grit

Hi all

I have a question in relation to where a person can buy Oyster shell grit for chickenss. I live in Galway so If anyone knows somewhere in this neck of the woods I would really appreciate it :)

If you get stuck we have it for sale but obviously cheaper to get locally without carriage charge if you can.

Ok about 60 phonecalls later and just for information of anyone in the area Leo in Elka Pet store in Mountbellew sells 20kg bags oyster shell grit for approximately 15 euro which seems extremely good value :)

Try this lady in Galway, I buy hens from her every two years or so, never bought oyster shell from her "she wasn't advertising it"
She is a nice lady

If you are unable to get oyster shell grit, buy calcified seaweed, it is every bit as good.
