    Hey guys, I love this site & I'm so glad to be a member. I've been treating one of my girls for a badly broken leg for 3 wks now. Did research & properly treated her at home & used aspirin water during her 1st wk. Its been 2 weeks without aspirin water(only reg. Tap water)... but havent used any of her eggs after reading a warning on NOT TO USE "aspirin tainted" eggs. I'm just wondering though, has it been long enough? Can I start keeping/using her eggs yet? Thanks for the help.! Btw, she's doing awesome & ive been letting her slowly mingle back into her family group, now that her leg has almost completely healed.!

    Are you/anyone in the household aspirin sensitive and/or on blood thinners or other medications that would be contraindicated to take with aspirin?

    I don't know how diluted the aspirin would be by the time it gets to eggs but, I agree I wouldn't want to use them. I can't use aspirin so I understand.

    Thanks for the responses. yes, i have someone who is aspirin sensitive, plus we sell the eggs. I'd hate to sell them and hurt someone else. I've disposed of all her eggs for the last 2 wks, since shes been off of the aspirin water. I was hoping to start letting her lay with the other chickens, but wouldn't know which egg is hers.
