Our chickens love to eat their own eggs if they break open. Our cockatoos and parrot get scrambled eggs Evey now and then and love then. They also like bits of meat once in a while. That is what they at in the wild too.

This is a fun thread. It makes me think of those egg crates at the grocery store proudly proclaiming the hens are fed a vegetarian diet. Anyone who’s actually spent any time with chickens knows they are miniaturized Velociraptors. Vegetarian they definitely are NOT! (As far as I am concerned, they exist to turn garden insect pests into tasty eggs.)

People have funny ideas about what certain critters eat!
