    Ok, here is the scoop.

    It is early spring here in East Tennessee so since egg production was down
    some I decided that it was a good time to worm the flock.

    Well it seems like as soon as I wormed them they started laying like crazy. [​IMG]

    Here I thought I was getting them at a good time when they were doing less
    egg production thus less waste. Now I am finding my self throwing out so many
    eggs that it makes me want to cry. [​IMG]

    I am wondering if somehow the wormer possibly caused them to increase in egg production.

    Anyway, has anyone had this happen to them? Or did my ladies pull a fast one of me? [​IMG]

    One final question, Are there any good uses for the eggs that we cannot eat due
    to the worming? I am just hoping that I can use them somehow.

    Thanks All.

    That is a good idea, They would be great for that since I cannot eat them anyway.
    Thanks for the suggestion. [​IMG]

    you could boil the eggs and feed them back to your chickens

    You could crack part open, empty, and fill with confetti; then place a piece of colored tissue paper over the opening and use them for Easter Egg fun!

    Can you feel these eggs back to them? Wouldn't that just make more bad eggs?
