    I just dewormed my birds and we won't be eating the eggs for two weeks. Is it safe if I boil them and feed the eggs back to my birds? Thanks [​IMG]

    Don't see why not, especially after a day or two. You'd just be giving them a little more worm medicine.

    Personally, I eat the eggs myself, but I know that is not recommended. I figure I spill the stuff on my skin anyway, what's a little more wormer....

    And, no, I wouldn't sell them or give them away.

    I would eat them if I thought I had worms.
