    I let my chickens (1 yr) out today with the little ones (6 weeks) because it was so nice out. I had the medicated chick feed in the garage in case the little ones wanted it (they are housed seperatly for now till the little ones can eat pellets). When I went out later I found the older birds eating it. Should I throw the eggs away for the next couple days or is it okay to eat them after they ate the medicated feed?

    They are fine to eat. Production hens are regularly fed medicated feed.

    Many BYCers prefer not to have that "special something" in their eggs, but it won't hurt you.
