Chickens ate some goat deworming pellets

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I am in need of some advice. My chickens ate a couple pellets of goat dewormer that contains morantel tartrate. They foraged through a pile of straw/feed that I swept out the garage. A mouse ate through the bag of goat dewormer and the chickens found it. I am using the eggs from my chickens to hatch, and am wondering if they are safe? Are the eggs ok to eat also? Any advice would be great.

The chickens will most likely be okay. I wouldn't chance it and eat the eggs, but I'm not sure for how long that would need to last. It may say on the packaging. Good luck!

Don't eat the eggs. When you give your chickens de-wormer, (in this case they got it) you are supposed to always wait AT LEAST two weeks before eating the eggs again.
