QUESTION
I have started working on my next year science fair project and would like to use my pet chickens as part of my project. My teacher suggested raising some chicks and injecting them with depo medrol and meticortin is this harmful to the chicken and would the eggs be safe to eat after the project?


ANSWER

The injections would probably not be harmful for the chickens, however, I would not eat the eggs for at least 1 month.
