    I had quite a few infertile eggs that I candles at 7 day,Can you cook them up and feed them back to the chickens,I hate to waste them.I did cook them and they looked and smelled ok but thought I would see if anyone has done this before.

    That's what I did with all of the eggs that were clear when we candled at day 4. The two that we candled and declared clear on day 5 I just cracked into a bowl and fed raw to the dog. Both the hens and the dog seem to be none the worse for eating them.
