We’d love to hear for anyone that has had any success composting used eggshells. We use a lot of eggs in our house and my girls are producing well at the moment, but I just can’t seem to recycle my egg shells. 😦
It’s particularly relevant at the moment as I’m moving my compost heaps to make way for the new shed we’re building.
- Do they rot down eventually … If so when ?
- Do they attract rats?
- Is there anything else we can you do with them?
When I come to turn the heap there they are staring up at me as if to say you have to be joking mate if you think we’re going the way of the rest of the heap!
I seem to always end up chucking them in the bin which isn’t exactly very green!
I’ve tried crushing them first and mixing them with some green stuff, but they are still there a year later, a stringy tangled mess of shell.
Perhaps it takes years before they break down and we’re just impatient?
If you have a compost heap and manage to compost your eggshells can you share your secret.
