I've done research before, but I just went and checked it.
"Wild chickens" would be Red Junglefowl, scientific name Gallus gallus, that all of our domestic chickens are descended from.
They eat a wide variety of plants, insects, small animals, and similar stuff.
I looked several places, and NONE mentioned eating eggs at all.

Sites I looked at:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_junglefowl
http://animalia.bio/red-junglefowl
https://animaldiversity.org/accounts/Gallus_gallus/
https://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/infopedia/articles/SIP_541_2004-12-24.html

As a practical matter, making the egg takes more nutrients than the chicken can get by eating the egg. So it would be stupid for a chicken produce eggs, and then eat those eggs. Much more sensible to just not make eggs at all. (Which is what red junglefowl and other wild birds really do: no eggs except when it's time to raise babies.)
i get what your trying to say thank for the info. But because people had genetically manipulated there oviduct. You could look this up or watch it from other videos. Its actually important to feed high production layers there eggs. i can understand the red jungle fowl. i would trust everything i find in google. i would watch the video i sent you its has a lot of great info than you learn. :) but thank for trying to help me in my thread really apericate it. and luv that ur a good person.

If you want people to believe you and/or not think you are a child, it might help to work on your spelling, grammar, and punctuation. 😉

That girl in that video was not a reputable source at all. She is just some random YouTuber. As was said, anyone can make a video. It does not make them qualified. And you cannot believe everything you read on Google. You need to look at actual scientific studies and peer reviewed articles. Stuff from websites ending in .edu or .org and that kind of thing. Not bloggers and YouTubers. And they do not need to eat their own eggs nor should they regularly. What they need is CALCIUM which can easily be provided by a bowl of oyster shells. Commercial poultry feed is scientifically studied and formulated by all sorts of experts and nutritionists to come up with for the appropriate nutrient values for various ages and purposes. They do not need any “extra” nutrition and actually, too many treats waters down the nutrients they do get.

I guess your right. But it seems unnecessary to use punctuation. Just for replying back.
I think it would go a LONG way towards helping make your point. Cause honestly right now, with the way you type and talk to people, you come across as very very young.

I'm making everyone think you're lying? If that's the impression you're getting I'm sorry, I was just trying to tell people that your chicken is probably 13 years old and we should stop arguing and give more you advice.
I want to help but I've never had very old chickens so I don't know how to help
