    I searched and couldn't find an answer to this question. If I deworm my hens, will it affect the FERTILE eggs, as in will it affect the chicks growing inside ??? ( I know we shouldn't eat the eggs for 14 days after.)

    All products are different and potentially use different active ingredients. I don't think it will affect fertility, Im not 100% sure though. I doubt it though.

    What I'm trying to find out is if it will affect the growth of the chick inside the egg. Or will it be born with two heads, 3 legs, etc....

    I don't think so, most dewormers aren't nasty chemicals or anything like that. I think they would be just fine!
