Calcium for Songbirds
Essential for strong Bones and Eggs
Calcium is the main ingredient in Bones and Egg Shells. Either one can be dried and ground into a product beneficial to Songbirds.
First, the Egg Shells should be roasted in an oven set at 350 F. until the reside is browned(see the photo above). Then a Food Processor does a quick job of reducing Egg shells to a product relished by Songbirds.
The same Food Grinder which minimized Sunflower Seed waste can be used to process Egg Shells. You can also use the bottom of a Drinking Glass to smash them in a plastic bowl.
Feeders which are used for Seeds can also be used for Egg Shells.
You should have a Feeder Tray on the ground, and also an elevated Feeder Tray for the preference of different species.
