    Totally OK and the chickens love it. It is also one of the things I have been able to get a sick chicken to eat when they won't eat anything else. Great vitamins and protein for them. [​IMG]

    My chicks love all their treats, but they really go wild for a scrambled egg. Some of my chicks are hogs about it so now I cut a paper plate into 4 pieces and place some egg on each piece to put in the brooder that way they all can get some. [​IMG]

    no need for grit for the eggs. I do start offering chick grit when they are 3-4 weeks to start getting them ready for other treats. [​IMG]

    Its def a favored treat and so healthy for them. Just be sure to never feed them raw eggs, don't want them to acquire the taste and eat their own eggs.
