    My silky that hatched out some eggs for me is with her 8 wk old babies and started laying again. My question is, is it ok to eat her eggs, since she is eating the same medicated feed that the chicks are eating. I don't want to separate her as she just got put back in the bigger coop and now she is happy again.

    eating those eggs will not harm you really not medicine like you think more like an enzyme inhibitor so they have a chance to build up immunity to cocci...
