    I made a post yesterday but can not find it today.
    Is it safe to eat the eggs from a hen with Fowl Pox?

    Thanks,
    Michelle

    No prob. I haven't found the answer either. If it were me, I wouldn't if they were being treated with any drugs. And I wouldn't for at least one month after drugs have been stopped. But everyone has their own opinion as to that timeframe and drug usage.
