    One of my hens had a staph infection so she got five days of penicillin as part of her treatment. How long should we wait until eating her eggs again? And should we be more worried about the staph infection or the penicillin where the eggs are concerned? My local vet doesn't know anything about chickens. Any ideas would help! MM
