    I have a surplus right now so I am just curious if anyone feeds them to their dog. In the shell or not?

    Sure. I feed her a powdered probiotic supplement and mix it into something runny, sometimes raw egg.

    She also likes them runny-scrambled, and when I feed the shells they are crushed up in that.
    She doesn't really care for shells all that much, but the birds love them, so there is no waste!

    Oh, Edit, there is some reason about bioten deficiency that you shouldn't feed raw egg whites. The conclusion over on the raw feeding forum was that you'd have to feed a large dog 30-45 eggs a month to have any issues. I feed raw eggs occasionally and don't worry about it one teensy bit. I do recommend that you research and come to a conclusion that you are comfortable with, or simply fry the eggs enough to cook the whites!

    I ususally crack one into a dish for our Mai, she has a skin issue and i think the eggs are helping! I save the shells for my birds. When I make homemade dog food I add 6 tablespoons of powdered eggshell to help add calcium.

    Yup. If I collect any that are especially muddy or poopy I throw them over the fence into the backyard. The dogs love them! Every now and then I'll crack one into the food bowls or I'll scramble them up. They gobble them right up!

    I feed my dogs raw eggs all the time with no ill effects.

    My dogs fed themselves a whole flat of raw eggs yesterday!!! [​IMG] I was expecting they would have the runs or something but they didn't. That was one CHERRY flat of eggs. DARK marans eggs, pure lavender orpington, Mottled Java, Silkie/Showgirl which could give me blue partridge showgirls... F2 mille fleur cochin eggs. I hope they REALLY enjoyed themselves. Did they tip over any of the two cartons with older eggs? NO! It was the good, fresh stuff! Made me ship a batch of eggs a day late too! Okay, rant over. Raw eggs didn't hurt the dogs one bit.

    We feed them to our dogs all the time. It helps their coats. Very nutritional for them.

    I feed the dogs and cats excess raw eggs. I just crack them on top of the dry food and give the shells back to the chickens. My little Shih-Tzu gets them in his beard so lately I have been cracking one in an empty sour cream container and putting it in the microwave for 35 seconds. Perfect egg, no muss no fuss.

    We crack them on top of their usual food, and throw the shell in too for some of our dogs (some don't like the shell).
