50/50+ Questions
    #4000975 - 04/01/05 04:31 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I'm using th 50/50+ recipe for my casing & I have 2 questions. 1) I went to a feed store for crushed oyster shells and they sold me a 50# bag for $6. But I noticed it just says "poultry shell feed" is that the same thing? It doesn't have an ingriedients list on the bag. 2) I saw that the 50/50+ tek recomends using calcium carbonate instead of hydrated lime. Is that the same thing as horticultural limestone?

big thanks

Is it just crunched up shells or is it some sort of feed mix?

It looks like just crunched up shells.

That's crushed oyster shell then. They feed it to poultry to give them calcium for stronger shells in their eggs.

Anyone know if horticulural limestone is the same thing (or at least interchangeable with) calcium carbonate?

thanks

Horticultural lime is an ambigious term. You do not want calcium hydroxide. You do want ground limestone or ground oyster shells. The stuff you want will not be totally white like flour (that would be calcium hydroxide). The stuff you want will be greyish unless you bought wine making pure calcium carbonate, which is pure white and will work fine too.
