Can you feed chickens scrambled duck eggs?

We have both a backyard flock of chickens and ducks. The dilemma- My wife prefers the chicken eggs therefore we always have excess duck eggs. I know people feed their chickens scrambled chicken eggs. Any reason why I can't feed them the excess duck eggs?

There is no reason not to feed your chickens the duck eggs.

Yes, you can feed chickens duck eggs. I also have a surplus of duck eggs that get either scrambled or hard boiled and crushed (shell and all) and fed to my chickens. They are a great source of protein during this molt season and when hard boiled and crushed they provide a healthy calcium source.

Living where the Central Plains and the Texas Hill Country meet  with 34 chickens, 5 bantams, 22 ducks, 11 geese, 7 dogs. Thirteen miles from nowhere and a short drive to anywhere. What more could I want!!!!!
