    I wormed my hens with Valbazen on 12/14. Yesterday was the 14th day since I treated them. Is it ok to eat the eggs now? Is it ok for a toddler to eat them now? I don't want to take any chances.

    Anyone Else???

    With only one person willing to eat them after 14 days I'm guessing I'd better wait longer. Just not sure how long.

    14 day withdrawal period is generally recommended after using Valbazen. I would eat the eggs after that time.
