    When I told my husband that we would not be able to eat the eggs for 2 weeks after worming my birds w/Ivermectin [​IMG] he suggested that we cook/boil the eggs and feed them back to the birds [​IMG] ... what do you think? would it hurt? double dose them? It won't seem like a waste at all if the girls can have them. [​IMG] Any thoughts?

    They would absolutely love that! Mine all love scrambled eggs. Hardly any ivermectin actually makes it to the eggs, so I wouldn't worry about double dosing them.
