    I wormed my chickens with wazine and read to discard eggs for two weeks. What about incubating them? Anyone know of birth defects caused by wazine?
    I hate to just pitch them..:(

    I did a search online about hatching eggs after deworming and though the results I found didn't go into much detail the verdict was to not do it. Chicks hatched during the experiment were born handicapped and deformed. It's better to wait out the 2 weeks and then incubate them, I'd say!

    Thanks, better not take the chance. Too many variables to try to control, let alone worry about defective eggs.
