    Howdy! I am doing a Science Fair project and I need some answers. I am researching how different foods affect my hens' eggs. I am currently feeding my 5 hens 10 tangerines a day along with their regular food, for one week, for the best results. Does anyone have any advice or input? Does anyone know what other foods would change the color or taste of eggs? Thank you! [​IMG]

    What is it exactly you want input on?
    My friend is doing a project on different foods if her birds prefer certain colored food. I am doing a project on how sound levels affect the behavior of shrimp.

    I am looking for one other food that will either change the size, taste or color of my hens eggs. Thanks!

    I've read that feeding them lots of onion and garlic will change the taste of the eggs. Not sure if that is correct or not!
