My two year old fed the older hens medicated feed that I give to the chicks.
Is this bad?
thank you

they are laying right now. I sell my eggs and do not want to risk it so I will hold off selling any.

Is it ok to hatch those eggs?

thank you

First, the amount of amprollium (likely product used) is very small. Second, unless that feed got fed to the hens by the bucket, for days, the amount processed and then passed into the eggs would take a mass spectrometer to identify. You can err on the side of caution, if they did eat a lot of it, for days and days, but frankly, short of that, I'd not be very concerned.
