Is is safe to feed my chickens old eggs?

    I know it's ok to feed my chickens their own eggs. I have made scrambled eggs for them before when we had an over abundance. However, somehow I had 2 dozen eggs pushed to the back of the fridge and left. I checked them and they float. I was wondering if I could cook them for the chickens or if I have to throw them out. I hate to see eggs go to waste but I would never want to feed my chickens anything that would harm them.

    I would crack one and look at it and smell it. If it is ok, cook them for the chickens. Even lost in your fridge, they are probably fresher than most store bought eggs.
