I have 9 hens, 2 Columbian, 2 barred rocks, 2 red sex links, 3 "comit" sex links and 1 black sex link. I recently got 6 of them from a farm where they were in very close quarters with 50-60 birds. After I got home I noticed that a few (2, possibly 3) of the new girls have a bit of a respiratory problem (sounds like emphysema from time to time, like a rattling when they breathe) and the rare sneeze.
We are in southern Ontario so we are just getting out of winter, so I figured now is a good time to get this. I have been mixing 2g's of Gallimycin to 2 litres (sorry Canadian, eh) of water as per the manufacturers instructions. Today is the last day of the 5 day cycle. So here are the questions.
1.) I have read alot of your forums before/during and even today, and it sees Gallimycin has only 1 day withdrawls, the guy at the fe1ed store (co-op) said to wait a week before eating, and the package says not to use on layers (which every resource online says is not true) I just wanted to hear what you guys/girls thought of how long until we start to eat these... They are massive, a few dbl yolkers and all perfect its hard to resist
2.)These girls have been laying, I have almost a dozen eggs that didnt freeze that I have held aside during the antibiotics, I will not eat them, however, I wanted your guys opinion of making scrambled eggs for them? Or should I just toss them? Seems like a waste to lose all that protein
Look forward to hearing what your thoughts are
