We have a grain de-wormer for our goats, sometime during the night something knocked over the container and I am afraid the chickens may have eaten some. They all seem to be acting fine but I am still concerned. Any advice? Do we need to worry about their eggs?

I don't really think it should harm them...But the eggs will probably not be safe to eat. Like it says on the packages
(not for human consumption)...I don't know how long you would not eat them for..Hmmm

I also have goats. Dairy goats. Most wormers I would use for them have no milk withdrawal, so if my chickens got into them, I would personally not be worried.

Of course, if they got into horse wormer, that would be a different story!

I would not worry either. The only thing I would probably do (besides watch them for a few days) is maybe dispose of the eggs for a few days. But even that may not be necessary. They should be fine.
