    Just a curious though. I have a lot of eggs leftover that I can't eat, and can't give them away.
    Will feeding them scrambled eggs make them pick at their eggs after they lay them?

    No,,scrambled eggs is really a nice treat to feed to your chickens. Just dont feed them raw eggs cuz then they might start eating the eggs.

    When we used to have left over eggs we would scramble and cook them. Shells and all. They won't figure out what they are eating and start in on their own eggs.

    Our girls love scrambled eggs, I put them in the microwave because I don't want them to have the salty butter. We also mix in the shell for added calcium!
    Another good idea for eggs is Yorkshire pudding if you want to try something different!

    If I feed my baby chicks (4 weeks old - approx.) a scrambled egg, do I need to start on grit?

    Thank you FlowerGirl. I still haven't figured out how to navigate this site perfectly. Must I give them grit as soon as I give them (eggs) food other than baby feed? Even just an egg? I would like to know how old they are - about 4-5 inches long and starting to get a tiny tail feather. Any idea?
