Egg in Puppy's Diet?

I want to add a raw egg to my puppies kibble every once in awhile. Although, I'm still not sure about it. Is there a certain age that I should wait for or can I start at like eight weeks old? I've heard someone say that eggs cause diarrhea for puppies, is this true? Please let me know your thoughts and recommendations. Thanks!

I use eggs as a protein so the number two ingredient in raw food. I soft boil them. The whites are undigested for both humans and dogs, so wasted as a protein source. I have eggs in the diet daily for pups as young as 6 weeks. I have never associated diarrhea with the eggs but am all raw feed no fast food here. Off memory 58% digestible raw, 97-98% with the whites cooked.

Are you going to pull those pistols or whistle Dixie
