- Poop Inspector
Welcome to BYC! My advice is to listen to your vet. FWIW, I use Baytril and I eat the eggs. If you're concerned, call the vet and talk to him about the reason it's banned for use in poultry.
I believe the wait time is five days.
We are dosing our girls with Baytril right now in their water. Two in the flock have a respiratory infection. We'll be tossing all the eggs for a few weeks.Pains me to do it. Especially as our Cuckoo Marans are just beginning to lay.
If ALL antibiotics are illegal for chickens how are we supposed to treat our girls for infections? Just let them die?
And, as previously mentioned, we all grew up eating antibiotic treated eggs, didn't we?
