    Hi,

    I want to try to make my own rock. Can somebody tell me where can I find crushed oyster shell in Ottawa?
    Regards

    Check Richie's Seed & Feed near Innes. I beleive it's used for chicken grit, possibly turkey. Been a while since I looked into that.

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    Any farm feed supply store should have crushed oyster shells. I got mine at Ritchies Feed & Seed on Innes but make sure to bring a tarp or plastic sheet if you're going to put it in the trunk of your car as the bags I got were covered in bird crap. The stuff is a bit stinky but it's great for DIY Rock. I made a bunch of rocks and it's fun to make your own. If you add holes and arches to your DIY rock you can come up with really neat looking pieces but make sure not to make columns too thin as they tend to break off easliy.
