    The yolk is were all the nutrition is--if you have to choose, go with the yolk but better the whole thing.

    You should be giving them the WHOLE egg! I crack the egg in the pan and then crush up the shell and fry that all up. They go NUTS for the shells too. I also save all the shells and let them dry or microwave for a few seconds, crumble up and throw them to the girls. They fight over those shells, even though they have plenty of oyster shell and other sources.
