    I would think that shrimp shells are good for my peeps. They must have a lot of calcium in them, right?

    Yes! Ducks really love them-but I would cook them to be safe-only takes a minuet!

    Numerous people on here have posted that they feed their girls crustacean leftovers. Seems to be a safe bet.

    Do you think it's beneficial to them?

    minute, a minuet lasts about 4 min-too long for shrimp

    Banter meant that the shrimp will be long gone before a minute is up!
