I'm currently treating 5 of my 9 hens with Blu-Kote as we have a bully (she has been removed and is on her way to the pot) who decided to get all pecky nasty on the other girls yesterday. This is the second time she has done this but no second chances for her. All 9 are laying but I've heard you shouldn't eat the eggs if treating with Blu-Kote. I applied it to 3 on their backs as that is where they were bald and bleeding and the other 2 near their vents which they are in bad shape and have been removed, recuperating in small dog crates individually. It makes sense I may not want to eat the eggs of the ones with the pecked vent areas but how about the ones on the backs? I can't tell who lays what outside so I'll get no eggs for how long if I'm not able to eat them with this medication? I now only have one "normal" looking Orp out of five. I have four Barred Rocks and one is in bad shape with her vent area being pecked quite severely. The offender is a BR.
