Fowl pox - can you eat the eggs.

Post Sat Sep 11, 2010 3:36 pm

Mavis has some black spots on her wattle, the Vet wasn't sure what it is and sent some pictures to Langford??? Anyways I had given some eggs to someone on the morning I noticed she had these spots. Should I warn them not to eat the eggs? Or should it be fine? She is still eating and drinking fine.

Even if it is fowl pox, she will have had it a while before the scabs were present.

I cannot think of any reason why you can't eat the eggs. I don't think humans can catch fowl pox.

There is some conflicting advise, some say not to eat the eggs and others say they are fine if you sanitise the shells. I personally would not give eggs to other people from any hen that is not in good health.
