    I just got a Silver laced Wyandotte laying pullet. She's in quarantine at the moment. This is my first time quarantining a bird. I did do mite treatment using Garden and Poultry Dust just to be sure. Is there anything to be concerned about with eating her eggs after having dusted her. If I shouldn't, can I feed them back to her? And how long after the dusting should I wait?

    Eggs should be fine. This dust is not going to get into her system, it'll just dust the feathers, and then the first dust bath she'll have it all replaced with earth dust, lol I would eat those eggs and not think a twice about it....
    Good luck with your silver pullet.
