I read somewhere on here they put their egg shells in the microwave for 30 seconds. feed it free choice if you have a rooster, they don't need as much calcium as it can damage their kidneys and liver - hope that helps

Yes you can and it does help, just dry them in the oven at 250 for about 30 min, feed back free choice or as a scratch. works wonders and should be done periodicaly.

You have to put it in a hanging rabbit feeder or a heavy bowl that they can't tip over, Small dog bowls with sloped sides on the outside work well as they can't tip or spill them.

I save all my egg shells and then put them in a microwave for 2 minutes. I then put them in a small coffee grinder and it makes them into a powder that I mix with their feed or put in their yogurt and fruit as a treat. They never leave anything over and I think it is good for their egg production.
