Quick question on egg shells, should it be like a powder or just small bits, i.e. am i feeding my worms the equivalent of glass. Did i read before that a sharp sand is an alternative?

Hi, I reduce my egg shells to a powder and use about a spoonful a month. Don’t over do the egg shell because they contain lime and can change the PH of the bin, and your worms won’t like it if it becomes too alkaline. Egg shell dose provide the small amount of calcium the worms may need and are gritty enough to be used in the worms gizzards to grind up soft food your worms may eat.
Budgies sand (used or fresh) can be used, and most contain a small amount of ground up shell which will provide the calcium.
If it is just for the gizzards then apparently used coffee grounds are all that is required.

Hope that helps
Willy
