calcium sources?

my north american millipede does have a chunk of cuttlebone in her tank, and i do offer her rep-cal pellets, which she seems to enjoy (when she comes out to eat that is)
i am curious, i had heard somewhere about giving egg shells to snails, that it helps them with their own shell. could egg shells be good for a 'pede?

also- i always wonder when she will next resurface. i continually offer food items, but she only comes out and eats (from what i can tell) for a few days with sometimes weeks in between. is this normal?
i do start to worry, but then there she is again. how long is too long?
