    is it okay to feed cooked eggs to the chickens if they are scrambled or sunny side up? i just found a bunch of cracked eggs behind the nest box and didnt want to waste em......so i figured id give em to the girls but i just wanted to make sure that it wouldnt make em sick or start eating their eggs outa the shell [​IMG]

    well..i think it depends how long the eggs have been sitting there..they may be bad already...espically being cracked and all..i personally would not risk it...

    I feed my chicken scrambled eggs. They like them alot. I think it should be fine to feed them eggs but I wouldnt feed them the ones you found. I would not risk getting them sick. I have fed my chickens eggs for a while and they do not eat their eggs unless there cooked. LOL [​IMG]

    Generally speaking, it is ok to feed your chickens cooked eggs (mine love 'em scrambled, hard-cooked, fried, whatever) -- but you don't want to be feeding them anything contaminated.

    If I have eggs longer than a couple of weeks and small eggs, I scramble them up and even throw in some of the shells, to feed to the girls. One of their favorite foods! [​IMG]
