Is it safe to eat softies?

Recommended Posts

One of our lovely ladies has just laid a softy. We have been getting a few lately they usually break though. The hens get their fill of layers pellets, have access to mixed poultry grit, etc.


I was just wondering if its ok to eat the egg. I'm not sure I want to mind! It's just a curiousity thing, Couperwife reckons it will be ok, so she can have it! soft boiled! :lol::lol:

I woudn't eat it Couperman the egg could be very porous if it has a soft shell...............You could always cook it and feed it back to the hens.

What a good idea, Nicola. We are getting a few softies as well, & since we only have 2 hens :roll:
