    My hen pen has been free rangeing for some time now. Just recently I have started letting my juvy pen out each mornig with the hens. The hens have found the chick grower in the juvy pen and that is the first thing they hit when I let them out. Just wondering if the medicated chick grower will affect the eggs and if they are still safe to eat. Seems like the hens like the chick grower more so than the juicy bugs. [​IMG]

    If the medication in the feed is Amprolium, the eggs are safe to eat.
