    I cull sick chickens. I don't eat anything (meat or eggs) that has been sick or required medicating.

    I would definitely cull the ones that are still showing signs of illness, like MissPrissy stated, I wouldn't eat them either. It's not worth the health risk. As far as eating the eggs goes, it all depends on how long ago your chickens were sick and what type of meds you used to treat the CRD. There is a withdrawal period that you need to follow with most medications before eating eggs again.
