The reason for withdraw of eggs is there is a residual amount of the drug in the egg. By feeding them back to the chicken the effect is to give them a new dose, all be it small, of the drug. The result is that the drug stays in their system and by the end of the standard withdraw time they may still have the drug in their bodies. So if they call for not eating the eggs, I wouldn't feed them to the chickens.
