I have some fertilized eggs under one of my broody hens that are scheduled to hatch on Monday. I have moved her to the brooder, with her own source of feed and water, but I realized that once the chicks hatch, that I have medicated chick food for them. Is it safe for her to eat that? and if not, any suggestions on how to separate her food from the chick feed?
I appreciate any advice that any of you may have regarding this.

Don't quote me on this, but from what I have read I understand they can eat the food, just don't (you) eat any of her eggs while she is eating the medicated. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
