    I have an Easter Egger who was having problems with losing feathers due to picking done by other hens. I treated her small beak cuts with Blu Kote. One bare spot was around her vent and when she laid an egg soon after I applied Blu Kote there was a little bit of the purple dye on the shell. I think the egg is okay to eat but I just wanted to check. Sorry for the long post and thanks for any help!
    (I wasn't sure where to put this. Sorry if it's in the wrong section)

    I would have no reservations about eating that egg.
    Consider that the shell is quite impervious to nasties anyways.
    WISHING YOU BEST...... and :welcome
