    I was TOTALLY UNAWARE that my DH had been medicating my hens and fried up a fresh egg this morning only to find out tonight that the girls have been on Duramycin-10 since Sunday! I NEED to know what is the worse case scenario as to whats going to happen to me.... I'm kinda freakin out here.

    If you get some activated charcoal from a health food store and take that you will be okay. Activated charcoal is what the ER gives you if you take something poisonous.

    I would so not worry about that! What do you think is in all the pretty little eggs at the grocery store?
