Barred Rock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My two year old Barred Rock died suddenly last week. After nacropsy I found out she had ovarian cancer. This is probably a dumb question. Are the eggs that i still have, safe to eat?

So sorry about your loss :hugs.  

 

The eggs should be safe to eat.

 

But if the idea disturbs you, then it would be better to send those to your compost.

 

 

I also lost two of my 2 yo hens this year from internal problems.  Mine were both hatchery chicks - a BR and a BO.  Have read that internal problems and cancers seem to appear more often in hatchery chickens and wonder - was your BR a hatchery chicken or from a breeder?

 

And we did eat the eggs mine laid before they passed - they were mixed in with the others and I never really thought about whose was whose.

Thanks for info.

 

I had 6 from a New Mexico hatchery,  the four left in my flock are happy and healthy thus far.  But still grieving the loss of those other two.

 

Wishing all your remaining flock a healthy and long life.
