Would micro-waving eggshells for 15 seconds & then crushing them for the chickens be o.k.?
I am finding out the amount of time to microwave depends on the number of eggshells and how freshly cracked they are relative to how much they have dried out. Best to do in short bursts and check? I am also just new to cooking eggshells.

Thank you for your input!
Why would you want tp cook eggshells?
To give the chickens calcium that way rather than with oyster shells.
that, and it is a lot easier to crush them after you cook them
Quote:I put mine in a blender for a couple of seconds & voila, crushed!
that cant be good for your blender!!!
Quote:It didn't seem to mind...
I just started baking mine in the oven until they're extra crispy. Then I crush them with a rolling pen and mix them with live culture yogurt. My girls LOVE ot.
