    She was sick for 3 weeks. Couldn't stand straight, kept falling sideways. I isolated her immediately, fed her mash instead of pellet, put some ACV in her water, and she's been looking much better every week. Almost normal. The comb is back to red, she squats again and wants a tail tug. Today we got our first egg from her since she got sick.

    When are the eggs OK? I don't plan on putting her back in the coop again until she seems completely normal for at least two weeks. Is that also a good idea?

    I think you can eat them as long as you did not worm her or use antibiotics.

    None of that. Just isolated her, limited all treats, went to turkey grower (21% protein), put the isolation cage on the grass often. Just sort of babied her.
