They likely wouldn't eat them unless there's a lot of peanut fragments still inside.  They're very fibrous and have little food value.

They make great litter.  We used them for years until they becaqme too expensive for such use.  I assume they found a better, more profitable, use for them.  A little dusty when first put down.

Mine won't eat the shells but they love the nuts!!

I'm out of eggs. But I know where some brown ones are. I now raise big Ol' Honkin' Bob Whites & Layed back Coturnix. Pray For Rain In Texas!
