Chicken Banquet Mineral Block
Zoo Med Laboratories presents the Chicken Banquet Mineral Block. Dietary calcium is necessary for chickens to ensure strong eggshells and bones, the company states. The mineral block is loaded with this essential calcium mixed with dried mealworms, organic grains and seed (corn, wheat, milo), and in-the-shell sunflower seeds. Not only does this gourmet treat lead to strong and healthy eggshells, but it also engages chickens by allowing natural pecking behavior and providing enrichment. As a bonus, if a flock has aggression issues, owners can place the mineral block in the coop as it can help reduce hostility amongst flock members.
