    We sometimes have extra eggs, is this okay to feed? We feed 16 percent pig pellet and table scraps to our two feeders.They are currently about 50 or 60 pounds and doing pretty well. Should I cook the eggs or just give raw? We appreciate any advice. Thanks,

    Well, I don't know that I can tell you whether or not you should....but I can tell you we feed eggs to our pigs all the time. We don't let the ducks or the geese set on their eggs and so we just throw them to the pigs raw. They love them. Considering what all pigs will eat, I highly doubt it would hurt them.

    we have done that too. They love the eggs, and it is a good source of protien for them.

    Raw eggs, shell and all, go ahead and give it to them. It won't hurt them and they love them.
