    I wormed my chicks about 2 weeks ago I kept their eggs for the two weeks. What to you think that the damage could be done to the eggs that would make them inedible? Let me have your .02

    They will have the worming chemical in them. You could boil and feed to chickens.

    Well, if you try to hatch them, they will likly have deformities and not actually hatch. I remember a case from a while back, where someone was trying to figure out why their hatch was so bad... and it turned out that the eggs were collected not long after birds were wormed.

    As for you eating it, you'd be basically just eating some of the wormer yourself. Wormer is pretty much a poison that is just enough to kill the paracties, but not the bird, so you probably don't want to eat it for yourself.
