If you do try it, I think I recommend homemade to give it the fairest chance.  Everybody I've now gushed to about how great  eggnog is has said the same thing, "Yes, it's good.  Especially homemade."

Oh, it has to be homemade cuz of allergies. I'm a good cook thankfully :D

Sigh, total disaster making homemade eggnog yesterday. 

First, I cracked an egg open and it was rotten. OMG, so vile.  [smiley=puke.gif] [smiley=puke.gif] [smiley=puke.gif] (I keep chickens, so this one must have had a hairline crack or something.)

Cleaned that up and got my mixture ready. I tempered the eggs....well I thought I had. Looked all good, dumped back into pan to thicken back up and, no, apparently didn't stir enough, because yay, scrambled eggs...  Vanilla nutmeg scrambled eggs. Really nice taste, with the grossest texture. Boak.  Gave my chickens scrambled eggnog eggs this morning and they started cooing in delight.  Glad they got to enjoy my failures.   

So, errr, will need to try again today.  I will preserve because the flavour was perfect.

They eat anything. All kinds of meat.  They love eggs.  If they crack it or if they lay it outside of the nest box, they'll crack it right open and eat it.  They'll eat chicken.  Cannibals.  We don't have any food waste, as they will eat whatever you chuck in there.
(Except avocados and green potatoes. These are poisonous to them.)

OMG, this has rocked my world! 
Chickens eating eggs with vanilla flavouring?  Eating leftover chicken? 

Please don't tell me any more.

Didn't mad cow disease spread by feeding dead cows to live cows? 

Don't blame me when you get mad chicken disease.

For what it's worth, we don't feed things like sweets or sugar or chocolate to the chickens and cooked meat and cooked eggs are a rare thing. I never actually feed them raw eggs, because we don't want them to be eating them. 99% of the time, it's veg peelings, full of goodness and vitamins.  So getting some cooked eggs is a rare treat for them.
I am sure there are DEFRA rules around this, but the internet is full of confusing information. So I try to be pragmatic.

If it helps, I think it's hilariously awesome that it seems you can feed chickens almost anything successfully...including chicken...LOL
