Someone once told me you couldn't give citrus fruits to sugar gliders. But when I look on this list of fruits/veggies
http://www.sweet-sugar-gliders.com/calcium_phosphorous_ratios_sorted.pdf
lemon and orange peel are at the top (I know it says that those are high in oxalates, and that's not best) and lime, lemon, mandarine oranges, gragpefruit, etc. are also on the list.
I was just wondering everyones opinion on them!

They're OK in moderation. The acids can upset their stomach if they have too much and cause diarrhea.

I know..that's what I thought about egg shells on hard boiled eggs too, but now, I give the whole egg.

No, I put the whole thing in there. I have 5 gliders. They tear it apart and eat almost all of it. I feed LGRS suggie soup so I just add that for extra protein occasionally.

You could probably give them a half.

With one glider I would cut the egg in half, leaving the shell on. I would crack it and peel away a little bit of it at the top.
