I collect them at the beach. My birds also love them. Just make sure to clean and thouroughly cook them.

I have some pure calcium carbonate available from when I was making a clay substrate for froglets, but you can also just crush cuttlebone and use that. It's mostly calcium carbonate anyway but it also contains some extra minderals.
