Our chickens are range free and that means...
nutritious eggs, both inside and out
which means, I don't like to throw out the eggshells
there are 3 ways I use my eggshells
1. crushed up fine and mixed into my chickens' supplemental feed, in particular, for the egg laying hens
2. crushed up into a powder and put into my dogs' food - they need their calcium also
3. crushed and put directly around my plants or infused along with weeds and grass for fertilizer
when infusing the eggshells with weeds and plant cuttings...
I let it steep for a few days in water...
to draw out the nutritional properties of both eggshells and plant cuttings
eggshell tea for my plants
my dogs and chickens like drinking it, too
when I do infuse fertilizer tea with plants, I'm careful not to put in things the animals won't eat
they seem to know what is toxic to them
my lemon balm plants seem to like eggshell tea quite well
May your day or night be infused in the grace of the Lord.
