    Default Ways I can use eggs for the dogs?

    I have a little egg selling business going on now, I have 30 chickens, but they're not all laying yet. Getting an average of 17 per day.

    Every day I'm finding anywhere from 1-5 eggs that are too dirty to clean/sell or have small cracks meaning I can't sell them. (I'm going to make more nesting boxes and change to a different nesting material which will hopefully help to reduce these occurrences).

    I would eat them myself, but my dad has a few chooks which are supplying the family with more than enough eggs.

    I'm planning on giving the ferrets one egg with a few supplements every day to share, but that still leaves plenty more to use up.

    Both dogs have been getting 1 egg per day for a week or so now, I just smash it in their bowl and they love it. I pondered boiling up the eggs I can't sell and stuffing them in toys, but that would still be a lot of egg to use up...

    Does anyone know of any dog treat recipes that I could use lots of eggs in? Preferably long lasting treats, and also preferably treats that don't need to be refrigerated... but i'm open for any ideas

    My dogs steal eggs from the free range duck and chooks..........some people tell me you should not feed raw eggs to dogs, but my dogs did not read that article, they all seem fine, especially Katy-bear who steals the most of them, She can carry three eggs and not break them and go to her private little area and eat them As they are the eggs that were not laid in the nesting boxes I just let them be. I would love to see if anyone has any treat ideas

    Dodge used to sneak over to our neighbours farm, find a way into their chook yard, then sneak into the coop (ignoring all the chooks) and steal eggs right out of the nest boxes. Neither us nor my neighbours realised what was happening until we caught her in the act! We watched her go over there, and then bring back one egg in her mouth, she didn't eat it until she was well and truly back on our land... too clever for her own good I say

    Dodge and Koda are very used to having raw eggs as well, the past few days they've had one each every day. My ferrets sometimes get a raw egg yolk too.

    You could probably make cheese or liver treat biscuits out of them.

    I've been giving my dog the left over egg shell from boiled eggs I eat. Sometimes - the eggs I have get too old for me to use and I boil those and give them to her. Raw is way too messy. I videoed her eating a boiled egg - it's very funny. She makes great faces...

    I think with biscuits - how long they keep is related to how well they're cooked (how much moisture is left in). There's someone around here selling "itty bitty liver bikkies" and someone else in Brisbane selling "Lamb moisties" that have a texture like smackos ribbons. Ie not dry but keep outside the fridge. I would love the recipe for the moisties - tho I think my dog would inhale and choke on raw mince if I was using that for treats...

    You could probably make something like a quiche - mix up a bunch of eggs, maybe throw in some breadcrumbs or a bit of stale bread just to firm it up, then add in bits of liver or anything else dogs like to eat.

    I give my boy eggs occasionally (cooked and raw) and he loves them .. don't see what'd be so bad about giving the eggs raw.
