The eggshells provide extra calcium. I usually keep mine in the refrigerator and when I need them, I put them in the blender and make a fine powder that I sprinkle over their food.

FourIsCompany, your silly girl is beautiful! Isn't it funny how they can amuse themselves with the oddest things. lol :p

Anyway, back on topic here; Of all my wild bunch, including fosters, only one eats the shells, Artemis. The rest just lick 'em clean. The shell is supposed to provide a good source of calcium but unless it's crushed up, as Renoman does, I don't think they really digest much of it.

I've used a scrambled egg with the shell mixed in as a Kong stuffing before. I just crack an egg, and crunch the shell up and mix it in, then nuke it in the microwave for about 40 seconds. Instant scrambled egg, and they can't "pick out" the shell (although both my dogs seem to like the shells)!

I used to feed my husky eggshells until he got poisoned.. the veterinary did a study and found out that the eggshells had poisoned him for two factors, the dog couldn't diggest the eggshell (yay, sensitive stomach) and two, the eggs (Hill Country Fare) had alot of conservants in it.

Prudi won't even lick the shells, she will make a disgust face and just lick the yolk.

I give both my dogs whole eggs and they will eat the shell and everything. Lloyd picks them up and drops them to open them and Allie just bites down on them to open them up.

My dogs and cats both get egg shells. I just save the shells, when I get enough I put them in the oven for a few minutes and just grind them up into powder and sprinkle over their food. :D

Cherokee gets egg when I drop one on the floor by accident. Nothing make him happier! He just eats it all, including the shell.
