Duck eggs after antibiotics.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Good morning all! I was wondering if anyone could help me. I had a 7.5 month old duck on antibiotics for about a week and a day. She stopped laying prior to the antibiotics due to injury. Her antibiotics were stopped on Saturday morning. (Last does as prescribed ) This morning (5 days later) she started laying. How long after the antibiotics are done can we start to eat the eggs again?

Enrofloxacin is banned for use in poultry used for food, so if you go by that, you should never eat the eggs or meat of a bird that's been treated with it, but if you look up actual withdrawal info, I think it takes 5 days for the drug to not show up in eggs. I use enrofloxacin here and don't worry about it.
