XRAYs and Eggs?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My hen's leg was broken after being stepped on by a horse so I got it Xrayed and set. I was wondering if the aspirin and radiation would make her eggs not edible any longer? Should I wait after a few eggs to consume them?

I imagine the eggs will be okay. :)

Then said He unto them,

“But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it

and likewise his pack; and he that hath no sword,

let him sell his garment and buy one."

Give it a couple days with the eggs.  But she should be laying again in no time.

Okay. Yes she hasn't laid for a few days now so I'm wondering if the stress and pain has affected her laying. Will not laying hurt her? It's the first time I've had this kind of problem

It depends.  There is no written rule for this kind of stuff.  It's a waiting game; hope for the best :) 

Stress can decrease lay; radiographs should not.  I have radiographed my fair share of birds that laid later that day.
