Eggshells Uses Around the Homestead - A Renewable And Valuable Prepping Resource!
To regular folks, eggshells are merely trash. But to homesteading families, preppers, and survivalists, they offer a bounty of essentials uses around the farm. Even a small flock of chickens or ducks will produce an incredibly large amount of eggshells to use on and around the homestead – saving you money now and providing a renewable resource after a SHTF scenario happens.
There are about 750 to 800 milligrams of calcium in every medium-sized eggshell. The easily accessible shells are simply too valuable of a resource to be carelessly tossed into the trash! When eggshells are used for edible human remedies, they must at least be cleaned thoroughly.

Put the eggshells onto a baking sheet – no need to crush them up, and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
