    I was using our chicken's eggs for some frying batter and we have some egg batter left and I don't want it to go to waste. I was wondering if I can scramble it and give it to my chickens? Will the cornstarch in the mix hurt them?

    Corn Starch is made from corn, so they should be fine with it.

    X3. I don't see any reason why they couldn't eat it.
