hard boiled eggs

Happy Easter!

Can I feed Luna part of my hard boiled egg? Is the yolk or white better/worse for her?

Thanks!!

Re: hard boiled eggs

Yes, she can have some. The white would be best for her. She can have some of the shell as well for extra calcium.

Happy Easter!

Re: hard boiled eggs

The shell has lots of calcium.

A couple of concerns with feeding hard boiled eggs:
1) If you are ever going to breed with the bird, it might consider the laid eggs to be food.
2) If there is ever a bird flu outbreak, the most likely reservoir for the virus would be amongst commercially farmed poultry, and farmed eggs could be a likely vector for disease transmission.

That is definitely worth thinking about. We haven't yet had a bird flu outbreak in the US, but it will eventually happen if the scientists are correct.

Re: hard boiled eggs


A well cooked egg without salt or other additives is a great treat for your bird.
It provides lots of protein and other nutrients. You can also use the shell (dry it out- usually bake in oven until it's very dry) to crumble over other food to add calcium to the birds diet.

Mishka loves his eggs, hard boiled
I boil the egg, break it up, with the shell
I give it to him outside during summer (or in the bath during winter)
BECAUSE IT STINKS LoL
I once gave it to him in his cage..... NEVER AGAIN

Re: hard boiled eggs

Eurg, I agree. They become stinky, fast

Egg white+shell are the best

Re: hard boiled eggs

I often scramble eggs with the shells in the blender for my amazon and then cook them really well done for him. He loves them. I have also given him egg whites.

Re: hard boiled eggs

Rosie picks out the yolk and leaves the white. I do not feed the shell any more unless the egg is from a local farm.

Re: hard boiled eggs

Thank you everyone! We have a ton of eggs leftover since it's easter. I will see if she will eat some egg tomorrow. This is unfortunate for me because I dislike hard boiled eggs and Luna wont try anything unless she sees me eat it first. ick.
