How long do I discard their eggs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Good morning everyone,  

 

I am relatively new to raising chickens (3rd year) and have a small backyard flock of 37.  In the recent weeks I have noticed about 6 - 8 of my girls sneezing and coughing.  I have treated them (entire flock) with probiotics, electrolytes and even some VetRx mixed into oatmeal but they do not seem to be getting better.  I have decided to go with a broad spectrum antibiotic (Oxytetracycline) for 5 days to see how this works and understand that I must discard their eggs during the time they are on the antibiotics.  What I do not know is how long I will need to discard the eggs after finishing the treatment.  Any and all comments would be appreciated greatly.

 

Have a great day,

Evart Chickens

my vet said 14 days after 30 days treatment. I think after 5 days treatment 7 days would be plenty. if you sell eggs then 14 days, just to be sure. I eat eggs 7 days after treatment but never sell them.
