Chicken Coop & Run 6ft x 8ft

Take these shells and put them on a cookie tray. Bake them off for a about 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Crush them and offer them back to your chickens as a calcium source. Recycling! If you don’t have chickens you can compost them. Don’t dare throw them away. That is a waste of a good resource! If you know someone with chickens give them the crushed shells. They will thank you for even the store bought egg shells.

Lamb’s Quarters, Chenopodium album, is a wild green that contains more calcium than any other plant studied, according to botanist and author John Kallas. It’s also high in protein, vitamin A and vitamin C. The leaves taste excellent raw or cooked. As a member of the Goosefoot family, it is botanically related to spinach, as well as to Swiss chard, quinoa and beets.

NEVER Feed Your Chickens: Citrus (peels or fruit) declines egg production.Spoiled meat or meat in large quantities.Raw eggs are safe, BUT encourages them to eat their own! Garlic and onion are safe, just be aware that if your hens eat these, you’ll have garlic and onion-flavored eggs. Avocado, the fruit of avocado is OK for chickens to eat, but the skins and pits are slightly toxic. NO potato peels, they are toxic. NO beans, salty food or sugary foods. NO chocolate, morning glories & daffodils.
