    I am in the process of deworming my chickens with wazine. I know the eggs are inedible for 4 weeks but was wondering about hatching the eggs instead of discarding them? Any and all responses welcome. Thanks in advance. KLouden

    I hatched eggs from the withdrawal on "Worminator" to see if they would hatch. Most of them did and seemed fine.

    It's not the same drug, so things might be different. Hopefully, there weren't any long-term effects on the chicks that I'm not aware of. I think it mostly has to do with the medications not being safe for human consumption.
