    Found a shell-less egg on the poop board. The membrane is intact. If I hard boil it, will it be safe to feed back to the chickens? I have fed them back thin shelled eggs or an occasional egg with a little crack in the past, but never a totally shell-less egg...

    I have found a few and just broke it on the ground for the girls.(OK I tripped and dropped the egg) I have also scrambled the egg for them.

    Feed it raw or cooked. Mine won't eat the raw ones for some reason. But they love them scrambled or fried. With a side of sausage and a pancake, of course.
