    So I have a mixed flock and my girls were on medicated feed until last sunday. They now get a grower feed (for my younger ones) with an option of oyster shells for the older ladies. When can I begin to eat the eggs they are producing??

    The medicated feed probably contained amprolium or other thiamine blocker. The eggs should be safe to eat but you might want to give them a vitamin supplement for a while since they may have a thiamine deficiency.
