    Just a tad? We scrambled some eggs, and was going to give

    them to our chickens, but there was a dab of butter on the pan

    to keep them from sticking..thats ok right? Im really worried I'll

    give them somthing they shouldn't have so It never hurts

    to ask!

    Thanks!

    I scramble the eggs that I feed to my chicken in butter a lot and they are ok. My chickens have never had any problems with it.

    Great. They will have eggs scrambled in butter in the morning again. I found a few cracked eggs in the nesting boxes, so I will feed them back to them. They love it. It probably gives it more taste. YUMMY!
