    just wondering if anyone has taken the eggs that havn't developed and like, fed them to their dogs.

    i don't plan on eating them myself, but if i could crack them over my dogs food....would it be bad?

    i'm talking totally infertile eggs, not like, half developed.

    Throw them away, no reason to chance your dog getting sick.

    JJ says they make great slingshot ammo for getting rid of stray cats, I wouldn't feed them to anything though.

    Since they have been incubating, I would just toss them out.

    THEY ARE DECAYED AFTER BEING HEATED IN THE INCUBATOR AND SHOULD NOT BE FED TO YOUR DOG.

    I bury them. But then something digs it out 4 weeks later and eats them... but that's their problem not mine.

    I was thinking of giving the developed babies that did not hatch to a person who keeps snakes.

    Toss it Mibotsu....

    Not worth getting your dogs sick. I'm sure after that many days at 100 it's full of bacteria. If it's something I wouldn't eat, I wouldn't give it to my dogs. :) If others do and dogs aren't getting sick, I'd say luck which is always subject to change.
