OYSTER SHELL GRIT:
Birds need an adequate calcium intake to help in the production of strong egg shells, and at other times of the year as a mineral supplement to aid digestion. Oyster shell grit is the natural calcium source to provide this aid. It can be fed by putting in a small dish on the bird table or mixed with seed.
If water is provided change it daily and disinfect containers on a regular basis. Regularly clean up under feeding areas and discard any old uneaten or mouldy food. Sweep bird tables off daily and thoroughly clean regularly. Move tables and feeders around the garden if possible or have several feeding sites.
Squirrel feeding is growing in popularity, not only is it fun, it also helps to stop squirrels from destroying valuable bird feeders and stealing their food.
