    We have some antibiotic chick feed that was given to us. It has pantry moths in it, so we want to get rid of it. Can we feed this to our laying hens. Any problems for the eggs?

    Thanks

    Look at the tag to see what the medication is. If it's Amprolium (or Amprol) it's fine. If it's bacitracin then maybe not.

    It makes a great fertilizer if you don't want to feed it.
