If you feed table scraps to your chickens will it have an affect on how your eggs will taste?
It depends on the scraps ... things like garlic and asparagus can affect egg flavor.
I honestly wouldn't know if it did.
I use eggs oldest first, so it's been a few days since they were laid and um....I can't remember exactly what was a table scrap 3-5 days ago. It's not exactly high on my priority list
Just stay away from feeding them anything that has a really strong taste or odor like garlic or onions. They can affect the taste of the eggs. If you think it tastes or smells strong, don't give it to the chickens.
They eat anything and everything. I don't notice an 'off' taste. Have you ever 'accidently' eaten a bug?? I have and they are BITTER!!! As much bugs as my chooks eat, my eggs don't taste bitter.
