    If I treat my hens for scaly leg mites with caster oil, can I still eat their eggs?

    Got a picture of the bottle your using?

    IMHO if Castor Oil can be taken internally as a laxative, then applying it topically on a chickens legs should not make the eggs inedible.

    Here's just a couple of articles I found with a quick google search - this may help you make your decision[​IMG]
