    How long after you give dewormer is it safe to eat the eggs again?

    Depends on the dewormer you used.

    I figured that'd be the next question! It's Safeguard crumbles (Fenbendazole); good for all worm types but tapeworms.

    Minimum 14 days but legally there is no established withdrawal time for eating the eggs since it isn't approved for use on chickens laying eggs for human consumption.
