    I frequently scramble up an egg and give to my chickens especially if it is cracked but what if I scramble eggs with milk, cheese, salt, and pepper added for the family.....can I give them the leftovers that no one eats even with the salt and pepper in it?

    Thanks

    That little bit of seasoning won't make a difference. Chickens have been thriving on table scraps for centuries.

    As long as you don't over do it....excessive salt (seasoning and in the cheese) isn't particularly good for them.

    My birds get all our leftovers, seasoning or not.
