Egg

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am just wondering if I should add egg into my birds diet? They are fed a wide variety of fruit and veg already including corn, broccoli, bok choy, apple, orange spinach.

 

If I start to add egg to their diet, how long should it be cooked for and what part of the egg should be fed to them?

 

Thanks

I have just started giving egg to my birds and they LOVE it. I boil it for about 30 minutes (that's what I've read to do) and they eat the whole lot shell and all mashed up finely. It's high in protein and the shell is for calcium :)

Hi,There are three ways to serve eggs....

No1 is raw, not recommended by some keepers because of possible salmonella

poison & it's messy, or thought io encourage egg eating during breeding.

Though I never had it happen in a deliberate manner in my breeders.

Just seems to be the natural way of eating eggs.

 

No2 Soft boiled. mashed with shell & mixed with the types of food you want your

birds to eat.& biscuit crumbs to crumbly mash...

.

No3. Hard boiled, an old Eggfood recipe its a simple basic mix that's

stood the test of time.

Why don't you try this You can't beat home made.

To make less or more, just, 1/2, 1/4 or double up the ingredients.

1. You will need 6 eggs & a small 300 g pack of Digestive biscuits

2. Boil the eggs 15 to 20 min or so.

3. Crush biscuits to crumbs.

4. Chop the eggs into small pieces.

5. Crush shells to powder, add to eggs.

6. Add biscuit to egg a little at a time, mix to a crumbly consistency.

Job done, divide & freeze into feed amounts. Not more than 1 teaspoon

per bird.

After thawing add anything edible to the mix if you feel it necessary......B.J.

Hi,

 

I trialled the egg today and the birds went crazy for it, they were all on the container and finished it off very quickly.

How often would you suggest feeding egg to them?

 

Thanks

Hi

I feed it once times a week in normal conditions

2-3 times a week for molting or conditioning them to breed

and then once the first chicks hatch, they get eggfood daily

they absolutely love it! :)
