    I have one Golden buff chicken with bumblefoot which I understand is a Staf infection. I plan on working on her foot tomarrow.
    My question is her eggs safe to eat or should I toss them because of her infection? Negg to know before I give them out to people

    Her eggs are safe. If you can take a picture of her bumblefoot, sometimes it is best to soak the foot in warm epsom salts or a product called TricideNeo before attempting surgery. Sometimes you can get away without having to do at all it if the soaks help.
