    Hi all

    Just wondering when is it safe to eat the eggs of your chickens after defleaing them? We used frontline flea control (something along those lines) and dabbed it on her. Would if affect her eggs? If yes then for how long??

    Cheers ;)

    I honestly don't know. Frontline isn't licensed for use on poultry, so it is unknown as to whether it is safe to eat their eggs. I use it only on my non-laying bantam show birds.

    The vet told me to use it so I did. Might wait a couple of weeks to be safe. ????
