    You need to have free choice oyster shell and also feed the egg shells back to them and their egg shells will get better. It takes 3 egg shells to make 1 new egg. Crush them up first. I also bake mine but you don't need to.

    When you go to the feed store they should already have oyster shell in a bag and it's crushed already.

    The eggs you bake them at 350 degrees for no more than 10 mins and then crush them. I wait for them to cool and place them in a plastic bag and use my rolling pin to crush them.
