its all good stuff. calcium carbonate is just lime, birds need it to make egg shells . im guessing the 'grain product' is probably something like cottonseed meal which is high in fat, helps to keep birds worm in the winter .
it sounds like someone gives a damn about birds  :laugh:  .who makes it ?

No... calcium carbonate is chalk
Calcium oxide is lime
Calcium hydroxide is hydrated lime

Calcium oxide=CaO
calcium carbonate=CaCO3
Calcium hydroxide=Ca(OH)2

pickie, pickie, pickie, is there a full moon tonight ?

calcium carbonate

a. White powder or colorless crystals; CaCO3 . One of the most
stable, common, and widely dispersed of materials. It occurs in nature as
aragonite, calcite, chalk, limestone, lithographic stone, marble, marl,
and travertine. Referred to as whiting, it has many uses in ceramics to
introduce calcium oxide (CaO). Also used as a separator in glass firing.
CCD, 2; Lee; Kinney
b. Calcium carbonate (molecular weight, 100.09) crystallizes in two
crystal systems: hexagonal rhombohedral or hexagonal as calcite, and
orthorhombic as aragonite. Hexagonal calcium carbonate (calcite) is
colorless, white, yellowish, or rarely pale gray, red, green, blue, or
violet; sp gr, 2.710 (at 18 degrees C); Mohs hardness, 3; melting point,
1,339 degrees C (at 1,025 atm); decomposes at 898.6 degrees C; and soluble
in water, in acids, and in ammonium chloride solution. Orthorhombic
calcium carbonate (aragonite) is colorless, white, yellow, reddish,
bluish, or black; sp gr, 2.93, ranging from 2.85 to 2.94; Mohs hardness,
3.5 to 4.0; transforms to calcite at 520 degrees C; decomposes at 825
degrees C; and soluble in water, in acids, and in ammonium chloride
solution. Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, 2
c. Source of quicklime and of calcium metal.
