Hi ! Do I leave shell on or off??
post #2 of 6

Welcome to BYC -- how old are the birds you are feeding?  I don't have peafowl, but for chickens I do the folloiwng - for laying age birds, I prefer to crush the egg with shell on and feed it like that.....for juvenile birds I prefer to shell the egg prior to feeding.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Hi , I have a juvenile. He is 10 months. I have been shelling them but wasn't sure if the shell is good for him

People leave the shell on for calcium. Laying hens need a lot of it for their eggs. Since you said "he", they won't be needing the calcium so you  are better off shelling it.
