    Can you save the shells after discarding the inside after a worming? Would they be safe if you boiled them or baked them to put in your garden, compost or give to the chickens? Needing some ideas how to discard the eggs for a month, and if any of the egg can be used Im all for it.

    Shells are ok unless you plan to eat them (choke.) Instead of tossing eggs in the garbage, give them to your dogs, they wont hurt them. Dont know why you need to discard them for a month. Normally there's a 14 day withdrawal period after the last dosing.
