    Recently I deformed my flock using Cayenne pepper, Chillie Peppers in carrot pulp. Along with crushed garlic cloves in their water supply.
    All this for 10 days. Three day start before new moon.
    My question is. How long should I wait before using my eggs ??
    We juice using two raw eggs in the mornings.
    Any thoughts ??? Thx.

    I would think it would just be a flavor thing, as the garlic can affect the taste of the egg, but I don't think there would be any health concerns like when you give pharmaceuticals and have to wait for that to clear the system.

    You should look into having routine fecals done. Don't assume your treatment worked. :D
    This is for cats and dogs, but it explains the basics of fecal tests:

    All those things shouldn't affect the eggs any. They should be fine to eat.
