    Just found worms in chicken poop, however I have a lot of eggs previously collected. Are the eggs safe to eat? Or are eggs contaminated? Can people get worms from eating those eggs? I know once the chickens are treated w antibiotics, you can't eggs their ages for a few weeks... Do I toss the previous eggs as well?

    IMO as long as you cook the eggs, you cannot get worms from eating those eggs. Most intentional parasites don't end up inside the eggs anyway.

    And [​IMG] glad you have joined us. For a proper welcoming, you should post an intro under the New Members forum.
