Crushing Oyster shells!!!
    #4590449 - 08/28/05 11:20 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I live in an area where river banks are completly loaded with oyster shells, they are everywhere, I went out and collected a bag of them, I was thinking of putting them inside a towel or pillow case and beating them with a hammer until crushed

How fine does it have to be, can somone post a pic? And if anyone has any bright ideas for crushing them let me know

Oysters = salt water. You saying you have salt water river around.
Sounds like clam shells. I suggest you boil them,after crushing.

If you have an old heavy duty blender, they work (sometimes).

A blender will handle clam shells. NOT oyster shells, as they are MUCH thicker. Just bust them up any way you can. A towel & hammer - just puts holes in the towel. Good luck.

Pet stores with extensive tropical bird section should have small packages of crushed oyster shell
