    I've found conflicting info on this...my broody and her babies are separated from the main flock by fencing. They've been living in sight of each other for a while. Yesterday, I allowed the broody and her babies to free range with the rest of the flock, but totally didn't consider the fact that the broody pen feeder has medicated starter/grower in it.

    The layers all probably found their way in there yesterday and ate some medicated. I'm guessing it's safe to eat the eggs the next few days, but wanted to get opinions just in case...

    The eggs will be fine to eat.
