    Today I found some lice on my girls. So I dusted the hen house and dusted their vents and under their wings. It is Gordon's brand poultry dust that I got at Tractor Supply. Are we still able to eat their eggs? Or should we wait a certain amount of time before eating their eggs again? It does not say on the container. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    If it is permectrin it would be fine to eat the eggs. That kills the lice on the outside and does not get into the chicken. systemic poisons that kill blood feeding bugs, like ivermectin have an egg withdrawl and also most worm medicines
