    Oh no, don't get me wrong. I am in no hurry to cull. I have plans to do nothing but grow out this year. But, I was told this will just mean read leakage in the blacks, which I do not want.

    My back is saying "No more snow!" We have at least a foot here, I'd say!

    Question... What is best to worm chickens with?

    Oh and while I medicate them can we still eat the eggs?

    If you worm them with pumpkin, the eggs are safe. Otherwise, no. You cannot eat the eggs.
    Anyone know if a dog/cat could eat the eggs?

    I am in 'mid worm' so we are tossing the eggs to chickens which have NOT been wormed (and are NOT laying). I've read that it is not safe to toss the eggs back to the ones you're worming as they are just reingesting the meds.

    Someone told me of the horrible experience of hatching eggs from a recently wormed flock. NOT a mistake I'd want to make.
