    Is there somewhere we can look (or add to the OP) to determine:

    When giving antibiotics or other medications to laying hens, are the eggs affected;

    Which medications affect egg "edibility", which do not:

    What is the time period after completing the medications that we should wait before eating the eggs from affected hens;

    Which Illnesses affect egg production;

    Which illnesses affect egg "edibility";

    Thanks

    Something I would like to see included would be an encyclopedia or something similar of weird egg issues similar to the one I personally just encountered (egg within an egg), how they occur, why the occur, etc.

    It's always interesting to read about the research behind the grand misfires!
