    Will feeding kitchen scraps that I would normally throw in the compost bin (in particular, onions skins/pieces, etc) change the taste of our chickens eggs?

    Myself I can't taste a difference.

    I've never been able to tell the difference - our birds get ALL the scraps, all the leftovers from take out, however we usually try to pick out as much of the onions as possible first.
