    This may be a stupid question, so I apologize in advance.
    Is it safe to eat eggs that come from your eggs if they have never had antibiotics or vaccines?
    If the chickens have something, will it go through the egg and make us sick?

    Again. I'm sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Antibiotics and vaccines do not necessarily make a healthy chicken. Most chicken diseases are not transmittable to humans. However, if you notice disease in your flock, I personally would not eat or sell the eggs from sick chickens until the disease issue is resolved. Most hens, if they are sick, do not lay eggs anyway. Not a stupid question at all :)
