    I have never dewormed my chickens but recently had one die suddenly. Yesterday another chicken looked as if she was not going to make it through the night.(pale comb and wattle and lethargic. Tale down and dehydrated.) She seems to have recovered but I am starting to think it could be worms and maybe I need to deworm my small flock of 11 hens. One thread I read said to use wazin 17 and then not eat the eggs for 2 weeks. Does anyone know if I can cook these eggs and feed them back to my girls or does that just add days onto the time to discard the eggs?

    It'll add time. That's why there's a withdrawal, to ensure there's time for the residue to get out of their system and the eggs.
