Although I don't keep chickens myself below is an article I found on the web:
Chickens need grit to grind up food in their gizzards. Check whether or not the commercial feed you buy requires the hens to have extra grit. Too much grit will cause an impacted crop, so if you leave the hens to help themselves they should only take what they need. Laying hens also need ground oyster shell in a feeder for the calcium for their egg shells.
