Yes, it is true but it does make the eggs taste funny.  They need to be wormed if they have worms. I use food grade DE (diatomaceous earth) in their feed on a regular basis which is supposed to prevent worms and deter other insects.

Remember just because you read it on the internet does not make it true research everything carefully and act accordingly
