How do you cook the eggs you are going to feed back to the chickens?
I had to give a chick some egg last night, so I cracked an egg into a coffee cup and scrambled it with a fork , and put it into a microwave for less than a minute. It was fully cooked and I didn't have to add any oil. I would imagine the same could work with a bunch of eggs in a microwave safe dish.
Just make sure you scramble them before you put them in, otherwise the yolks can pop. And stop every 30 seconds and stir to check if they are done.
I boil them and chop them up - shells and all.
I follow Miss Prissy's method. The shells mixed in gives them more calcium, I believe.
I feed them any way you can think of cooking them. Usually I just fix a few eggs for the girls that are laying. Crush and chop the shells and add to the eggs, whip it all up with a fork and add a little water and put it in the microwave.
I hardboil and smash them (shells and all) and the chickens love them!
