    New member from Northwest FL. I have 3 production reds that were given to me in May. I've never had chickens before and it has been fun and also leaves me wondering what was I thinking!! That was in the beginning but now they have become my new pets and I am concerned because one chicken has roundworms and don't know what to do and are the eggs good to eat?

    [​IMG] So glad you have joined us.

    IMO the eggs are fine - it is not common for the worms to get inside the eggs, but do cook them:) But you will need to study on how long to discard the eggs once you decide on a treatment strategy.

    You have been given a link to worming advice, but you can also post the question under emergencies to get more advice -
