    Whole egg and 4.5lb chi, too much?

    Guess this question is for the crazy chi owners here.. sorry that's how I described you, didn't mean it, honest.

    On another board, someone was asking about feeding quail eggs, thought they were too expensive and hard to find so suggested giving part of a regular egg rather than whole. Is a whole chicken egg too much food for a small guy like this? Have no idea how often she plans on giving them, I myself give Charlotte one or two every week, but she's huge compared to this little guy. No clue, please help.

    As with any dog, feed to bowel tolerance. Some 80 lb dogs cannot even tolerate half an egg while a 3 lber can eat 2-3 no problem. I'd say start with half an egg and if the dog is ok try a whole next time.

    I was gonna say "NO WAY!" but I remember not all dogs are like Betty. Heh. As Heather said, I guess some might be fine.. I'd likely start with less than half though, if it's a new food (but it seems like the were feeding quail eggs, so maybe give the same sized portion?). Work your way up to whatever your dog wants.. just because they can eat three at a sitting, I dunno that they should... thats a LOT of egg! Wonder if dogs get gas from them like people... *shifty eyes* No.. not me... honest....

    ...I'll pass on the egg salad thank you.

    thanks guys! I too wonder about that much egg, though Charlotte would happily empty a chicken coop of birds and eggs if given the chance!
