Raw egg?

Post by Kermie16 » Fri Nov 04, 2016 8:08 pm

Is it safe to just give the hermies a cracked raw egg with the uncooked egg white and yolk inside?

Ok good! Lol! Wasn't sure but figured since they are scavengers they really wouldn't mind. I did put it on top of a plastic dish so if they tipped it over it would soak into the sub. Looking in the tat this morning, looks like someone enjoyed it an it as there is sub in the yolk

I'd imagine it's rather nutritious for them on occasion. After all no one can cook it for them in the wild except the sun, though I doubt the sun is often that nice. Egg yolk has a lot of nutrients, hence the fact that it supports a chicken embryo :D
