Hello BYC, I left an egg in water/eggwash over night. Is it still safe to eat?
Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined us!
And hello from Florida. I have a small flock which i started in Feb of this yr. 1 BO 1 RIR 1 plymouth rock 2 red stars & 2 ducks. A pekin and a blue swedish or blue swedish mix? Recently lost a BO & Rock to a coyote or fox. I look forward to your advice!
Welcome to BYC! Not sure about that.
I wouldn't eat the egg. Germs go into the egg through the shell if your wash water isn't warm enough.
You could boil it for your chickens though! Just mash up the shell so it isn't recognizable as eggshell so you won't start eggeating.
Not sure what is in eggwash but I have left eggs soaking overnight and eaten them the next day.
Welcome to BYC! Happy you joined!
When predators are successful they will keep coming back. Do you know how it got your birds? Were they in coop or run - you'll need to beef it up. If they free range, that is the major consequence unless you have livestock guardian dogs. Check out the predator forums for info. on keeping the bad guys out.
