    I've got a hen who is being pecked on a pit so I picked up a can of Blu-Kote to put on her sore spot. I noticed on the can it says not to use on Horses to be eaten. I thought what about chickens? Sure enough the write up's online say not to eat chickens using blu-kote but nothing talks about eating the eggs. If the chicken is unsafe to eat during treatment wouldn't that come right through the egg as well?

    I have a chicken that is getting picked on and I want to use it on her head. She is not laying yet, but I would like to know the answer to this question as well.
