Is it okay for a horse to eat an egg?
So, here's the story -
I was doing my usual stuff, I brought the horses in from the field, put them in their stalls. I scooped their feed into a small container and put it into their corner feeders (they are nailed into the stall walls) So I just dumped the feed into their buckets not really thinking much of it...
My stupid chickens (laying hens) layed 3 eggs in Ducky's bucket. I didn't see them until the feed was already in his bucket. He isn't an agreesive feeder but he kinda dives for his food, so he ended up breaking two of the eggs and nearly had a flipper :(
He spat out most of his food but I'm still worried that maybe eggs are bad for horses???
Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
