    1. Rinse your eggshells
    2. Bake them at 250 degrees until dry and turning brown
    3. Pound them into fragments
    4. Serve [​IMG]

    It will also give them calcium for harder shells, but In don't wash or bake them. If from the incubator, I just toss them out, if used in the kitchen, I microwave for a few seconds and toss, If an egg get broken or cracked in the yard, toss and all turkeys, ducks and chickens come running. If they accidentalyl crack an egg, they eat it without any cooking and in 7 years never hurt them!
