Eggshells can be thrown away or composted, but even better they can be re-cycled. Hens love to recycle eggshells. They pick at them and eat them. Shells provide calcium and a hen needs a lot of calcium to lay the half dozen that she can lay each week. The black hen in the lower left has just grabbed a shell that I tossed into the yard. She is about to run off to try and enjoy it by herself. Despite the fact there are other shells they will all run after her. They always seem to think the other one has something better.
