    After one's hens have been wormed, their eggs cannot be used for human consumption for at least two weeks. But couldn't one put those eggs under a broody or hatch them in an incubator to no adverse effect? I was just wondering whether anyone had an opinion or words of wisdom about this. It always seems a shame to feed them to the pigs or the dogs or use them for target practice on the tree from whence the coon keeps watch.

    Sure. I don't see any problems with doing that.
