    I don't do this but I have heard that it is good to feed raw eggs and the shells to hens. Any thoughts on this?

    I always give mine some all the eggs I throw out of the incubator or just old eggs that I didn't use.

    I wouldn't feed them eggs unless cooked because they can become egg eaters and lay an egg and eat it! That's what happened with one of my hens! Lesson learned!! lol
