    I vaccinated all the flock for fowl pox. How long do I have to keep tossing the eggs?

    Why would you toss them? I am not an expert on chickens, but I used to have a dairy. There was no withhold on milk after vaccinations, only antibiotics. I would imagine it would be the same for chickens and eggs.

    GREAT.... I thought that I had read somewhere that the eggs were no good for 14 days. I guess I was mistaken

    I know when you give chickens worming meds and or medicines you should at least wait 2-3 weeks. Thats how long it takes to get it out of their systems-I feed them back to the chickens. I am doing ivermectin pour on this weekend ( twice a year worming) and there's a holding period Im following for that..
