    My chickens started molting so I decided I would go ahead and worm them, well they started back laying again and I hate to throw the eggs out. Do you think they will be alright to but in the bator? I gave them wazine on the 15th and these are eggs from the 26th and 27th.

    I think you could give it a try for a few days, then candle and see if they're viable. You might even call the company to see what they say. I know the eggs aren't to be eaten by humans for a certain period (forget what the bottle says now) and I guess it's possible that the chicks could hatch but be deformed in some way which would not be good. I just really don't know as I've always thrown mine out for a couple of weeks after using Wazine. Maybe it's fine and they just don't want the FDA troubles it might cause if they didn't warn against human consumption for a time after worming. Let us know what happens if you do decide to try and hatch them.
    It's an interesting thought...
