Eating eggs from sick chicken

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a chicken that I believe is developing bumblefoot. I know this is caused by a bacterial infection. I was wondering if this would effect her eggs?

It shouldn't effect her eggs the infection is external not internal.So her eggs are completely fine to eat smile.png

I think that its fine to eat the eggs, as long as you aren't treating her with any antibiotics.

First time Chicken family:  How can you be sure its bumble foot?  My one chicken go lame both feet and never saw any bump on the bottom of her feet.  she is still having a hard time walking but goes up and down the stairs.  another chicken is limping, a small bump, no pus expressed out when I tried to aspirate it.??  Any clues to help me.  the first chick I think was recently "pecked" by others she developed a sore under one or her wings.  I used the antibiotic spray.  She is still laying eggs any problem with the eggs?  The appear fine when opening ond no odor.
