Empty ostrich egg shells make a beautiful and unique canvas for crafts! You can paint, dye, etch and carve the shells. On the farm the shells are sometimes blown out because they have damage or imperfections. Occasionally the birds will accidentally kick the eggs or they may roll and hit a rock. We have a few levels of quality - from some imperfections ($15), minor imperfections ($20) to “egg”-cellent ($25). We typically drill one small hole in the end of the shell to empty the contents. The imperfect shells may have cracks or additional small holes. We are happy to send you photos of the shells, so you can make sure it is perfect for your project!
