    Eye candy. Theyre great to look at.
    And so darn cute! I love seeing all the different colours i can get out of my birds.

    Some people use them as snake/reptile food.
    Some pickle the eggs or use the eggs for ornaments and craft.
    Or like you said they are like little cleaners in your avary.
