Recycling egg shells!



Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have had many requests to share information about my canary care throughout the year and have decided that keeping up a blog would be a great way to do just that! Feel invited to share your comments!

Starting the year off right: It is critical to build the hen's calcium stores for several months prior to egg laying!

Recycle hen egg shells! Why waste those calcium-rich chicken egg shells? Just microwave them on a paper towel for one minute to kill any bacteria. Then process them in your food processor and feed to your hens. I use the ABBA products digestible mineral and then sprinkle a teaspoon or more of the processed hen egg shells on top. They love my homemade processed egg shells and will eat more of it than the mineral grit!! The canary hens love the egg shells so much that I have my co-workers at the hospital saving egg shells for me. I just have them collect, microwave and bring them to work for me. I am planning a trip to a restaurant just to collect more egg shells!!

Check back for more tips!
