it is used to supplement chicken feed, because the calcium in it helps strengthen egg shells and prevents breakage. try looking at a farm supply store or somesuch place.

I couldn't find oystershell anywhere so I made my own pH buffer w/ the eggshells from my breakfast...

1. Under running water, rub the membrane off of the shell.  It peels away very easily, especially under warm running water.
2. Place cleaned shells on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil.
3. Put your sheet in the oven at about 200-250 F, and bake until the shells just start to turn brown.  At this point they are completely dried out.
4. Take your sheet out and let the shells cool for a few minutes, they will be very hot.
5. Grind them up with whatever method you choose.  I use a coffee grinder, and like to grind them to a fine powder.
6. Add to your casing, or whatever you need it for.  I like to use about a tablespoon per quart of casing material.

Here's some pics of my final product:


Either way, GL to ya bro! :stoned:

Any farm and feed store will carry them.
