    Uncooked beans, excessive onions/garlic and the like will alter the taste of the eggs...I am too tired or I could think of more [​IMG]

    Potato peels are bad and avacados are too.

    Avoid anything salty. I have lost 3 hens over the past 3 years to salt poisoning. Causes a quick rise in blood pressure and the heart starts to fail. Then you have a hen that slowly dieing from ascites(water belly).
