G'day Lozza and all,
This made me feel all warm, cud lee duddley, fuzzy and any other James terminology to describe caring.
I think that the truly wonderful young Gloria Deppe just might bake the chicken eggshells before putting them out? I do with my ozzie mass produced eggs, can't always get free range, so I roast mine to be on the safe side, killing any bacteria. I put them on a baking tray and toast/roast them for about 30 minutes at a high setting. Never know where those mass produced eggs came from sometimes what might be in them.
Bless you Lozza .... JAG de Whag gone to work on an Egg.

A Community of People-Watchers

On the southern shore of Staten Island on the edge of Lemon Creek Park, a cluster of 21 buildings defy architectural classification. Some are multifamily, triple-decker designs of salt-whitened wood that resemble New England seafarers' homes. Others are postmodern, single-family units built of plastic in the shape of gourds. All have excellent views of the lapping waters of Prince's Bay, because they are built high atop


On a recent Friday evening, we visited the Lemon Creek martin colony and found Gloria Deppe, 77, standing beneath an octagonal birdhouse and placing broken eggshells on a low platform. "The females need calcium," she explained. "My friend saves me all her eggshells from the whole winter."
