    We are having an unseasonably warm winter here in the sunny southeast! We are sure to have a terrible summer full of mosquitoes. We are looking into vaccinating our small flock of five hens for fowl pox. They are producing eggs everyday. Is it safe to eat the eggs after they have been vaccinated?

    Yes, eggs are safe to eat. Fowl pox is not transmittable to humans.
