How long should I wait to eat eggs from new hens?

    I just bought a couple new hens that started laying. I'm keeping them separate from my current hens for a few weeks, but is it ok to eat their eggs? It looked like a nice place I got them from, but I don't want to get sick either!!!

    Unless they have been wormed recently or on other medication, their eggs should be fine.
