    It's ok to give the leftovers to the hens, it won't hurt them, but I wouldn't give it to laying hens if anyone is eating the eggs. If it is medicated, you should not eat the eggs while they are eating it and for a while afterwards (you'd have to look up the withdrawal time for the specific medication) because the medication will be in the eggs.
