    My cockatiels, lovebirds, and conures all love to eat hard boiled eggs. My hens aren't laying yet but when they do I'm wondering: is it safe to feed them my hardboiled eggs? Are there any diseases, etc. that free range (part-time) chickens can carry that might be able to be passed along to my other birds? I don't want to be neurotic but I also don't want my indoor babies to catch anything.
    Thanks!!

    Absolutely eggs are eggcellent for your birds.But remember to crush them up so they don't know they are eggs.If you don't they may remember how good they taste when they start to lay.
