    Rats have a hard time getting thru the shell, their teeth can't get a grip. I'd peel it for them.

    i crack the shells a little bit, to give them a head start. they love taking the rest of the shell off.

    I've always left the shell on, it gives them a bit of a challenge and they never try to eat it.

    SOmetimes I crumble a bit in the 'salad' I'll give them, else I usually give it to them whole so they can play with it a while and then crack it for them if they haven't managed it (they're pretty good about shoving it off the shelf and cracking it open).
