    [​IMG]I found my lost hen, Came home last night from a Grand daughter event and one of my hens was missing, looked all over calling ect...had to give up as it was very dark. this AM she still wasn't back so I asked her sister were she was, Thinking for sure a pred had gotten her just before dusk. I'm walking back to the house and sister hen is looking at me chirping she goes on to the front porch and there in the cat basket is my lost hen sitting on a clutch of eggs. YA! ! now my question ; I gave them all Wazine last Wed. and plan to give Ivermectin in another week. Do I need to take the eggs? I now you should through the eggs away and I have done so with all eggs in coops but they have been holding out on me and hiding them. Hen is a 6 1/2 month old Sussex

    If you want the hen to set on Wazine eggs, let her.

    If you are going to EAT Wazine eggs, toss them!

    Thank you ! I was wondering if the eggs would hatch or if the chicks would be OK?[​IMG]
