I like to recycle. I like to help the birds, plus I get to see them up close.

While reading 101 ways to help bird by Laura Erickson I found that birds are in great need of usable calcium. She suggested keeping your eggshells and the next time you have your oven on, turn it to 250 degrees, at the end of your regular cooking and bake the eggshells for 20 minutes. Crush them to smaller than a dime, put them someplace the birds will find them but not in a birdfeeder with seed and watch it disappear.

It works and mine went quickly. So that is what I will be doing with my eggshells.

    Neat! I've been saving all my egg shells for my tomato plants though. They use the calcium too.

    You can also use them for compost.
