Re: How Can Egg Shells be Used for Birds
You need to stone boil your egg shells before offering to the birds you have or you can microwave the shells for more than 2 min. To get rid of the diseases these shell might be carrying. Crushed into small pcs. can be offered to the birds which they will take to replenish Calcium deficiencies. Salmonella is a common disease which is passed through the walls of the shell and enters into the egg yellow while it has not been laid yet. A lot about that is readily available on the net.
