My hens ate poinsettia leaves but aren't sick can we still use the eggs?

I planted a Christmas poinsettia outside last week. A few days later I noticed that the leaves had been eaten off by my chickens and turkeys. No signs of any of them being sick or acting strange.. Trying to find out what to do with the eggs that have been gathered since they ate the poinsettia leaves and how long this can or will stay in their system? I have always been under the impression that poinsettias are poisonous.

Any suggestions....should I throw away the eggs and how long this might stay in their system... when/if it is safe to begin using their eggs again?
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer!
