    I just let them dry out for several days on the counter, or speed it up via the oven, crush with my fingers and put it in a bowl for them.
    Eggshells are gone in a day! Oyster shell, not so much. I don't worry though, because they never seem to have problems with thin shells.

    I have a container of crushed eggshells in their coop for them by the water and feed. I put the shells in a container that sits near the wood stove to dry then crush them.
