Scrambled Eggs for Chickens?
There seems to be something fundamentally wrong about feeding chickens scrambled eggs. The thing is they love them!
Today is only the third time I’ve offered this treat to The Girls. I’m not so taken with these chickens that I cook for them on a daily basis – this really is an indulgence. We are overrun with eggs at the moment, so I scrambled up a dozen. When I walked into the run, the chickens flew up to greet me, trying to get a taste from the plate before I could put it on the ground.
These eggs were gone in less than 60 seconds – the plate picked clean. It was a feeding frenzy!
