Empty seed shells removing apparatus

The empty seed shell removing apparatus has a main body including an interior, an interior floor portion, a top portion including air intake openings, a front portion having a front opening, and a front portion having an air exhaust opening. A fan assembly attached within the interior of the main body and including a fan member adapted to create an air stream from the air intake openings, around and through the interior, and out through the air exhaust opening; and a shell container sized and shaped to removably slide and fit within the front opening. The shell container includes a bin section adapted to hold the mixture of full seed shells and empty seed shells, wherein when the shell container is full of the mixture of full seed shells and empty seed shells and placed within the main body the fan member is activated creating the air stream from the air intake openings, around and through the interior, and out through the air exhaust opening, such that the air stream circulates through the mixture of full seed shells and empty seed shells causing the empty seed shells to fly out of the bin section while leaving the full seed shells therein, and wherein the empty seed shells end up upon the interior floor portion ready for removal once the fan member is deactivated.
