Shells i have about 2kg's of egg shells so have been doing some research on this finding what i can use them for and there a few things ie fertilizer, ant-slug,ect. so i would like to know how many of you have eaten them or would like to if they can be ? . i will be soon.
Thought i would post here as would make sense. but may benifit others as i did not pop in here much before.
Its How do you eat yours ,Dhool
Not sure but as a fine powder it could be added to soups, stews. possably will try some but nees refining more and im doing the rose hips still.
I leave mine on the radiator for a few weeks to dry , and crush them , then put them out for the bantams ,never had any problems some folk say it encourages eating there own eggs ?? never bothered mine ,in 50years. this year i'm going to spread them around the base of the lettuce which are grown on 4ft x 4ft raised beds, the banties will get them later as i've made a small hen coup + run to fit the raised beds ,after cropping .
Hi confused and welcome to the forum. I too give crushed egg shells to my hens and they never eat thir own eggs. Like you I am saving mine just now for battle with the slugs.
But one thing I will never be doing is putting them anywhere near my mouth
I love eggs but really feel sick if I crunch a bit of eggshell.
So Mutley the answer to your question is NEVER!!!!!
