    My broody has been eating medicated chick starter right along with her chicks (they're about 7 weeks old - just switched them over to grower today) and has just started laying again this week. How long after she's no longer eating the medicated feed should we wait to eat her eggs?

    Unless someone in your family is highly allergic to sulphur drugs, you can eat the eggs now.
