    They can, but sometimes you get flavored eggs from the onions. Maybe good for breakfast, but not so good in a cake!

    Yes they can. A few random on in or leek pieces in the salad scraps you give them are fine. If you make it a regular part of their diet, however, it will affect the taste of the eggs!
