I noticed yesterday that a couple of my hens have runny noses. No other symptoms.

I have been selling the eggs from them and I am wondering if those eggs from the sick hens are bad to eat?

Also, is there a natural remedy to treat them of their runny nose?

What kind of runny nose? Is it snotty or clear like water? Sometimes, when they drink, it comes back through the nose. Sometimes when they get food up their nose and try to expell it, the nose drains a little. Also, they can have reactions to environmental things like gasoline fumes, fumes from chemicals in new plywood, etc, that make their noses run. So many things it could be if it's just clear.

To boost immune systems you can put a clove of fresh peeled garlic in a gallon water and a couple tablespoons of unfiltered, organic Apple Cider vinegar with the mother of vinegar (sediment)
