    1 day into being treated with ESB-3 for cocci, my well renouned broody............went broody.............again stealing everyone else eggs for an 'instant' nest full.
    so shes sitting on 14 eggs (that were all bound for the bin due to the medicine the chickens are on)

    so my question is (saves throwing the eggs) if i let her stay sitting on them..will they hatch? or will they have been effected by the medication in some way? or is the reason i cant eat them siply due to the medication being harmeful for people and it wont effect growing embryos?

    or would it be safer to slip her some eggs from before i started medicating the chickens??

    They should hatch just fine.
