I’m veering away from recipes for today and I’ll give you a lovely tip for feeding your chickens. Seeing as how they feed you, it’s only fair that you feed them.
1. Save your egg shells, placing them in an old cake pan as they accumulate. Each time you bake something, throw the pan in the still-hot, turned-off oven so the shells dry.
I’m curious to know: I have 2 dozen chickens. I use probably half of the eggs they give and I feed them all of those shells. Is that enough calcium for them or should I still be purchasing oyster shells? If not oyster shells, is there any other free/cheap form of calcium I could give them?
