Eating eggs from a wormy hen

Asked February 7, 2020, 10:58 AM EST

Can you get worms from eating an egg (cooked) from a hen with worms? We won't be eating them now that we know she has worms, but we were eating them until now.

Most internal parasites are species-specific. You cannot get worms from eating an egg produced by a hen with worms.

Thank you!
