I have a nine month old buff Orpington that has a cough. I decided to give it human antibiotics as opposed to culling it. I separated it and have been dosing it with 50 mg of amoxicillin per day for the last five days. so far I have seen a marked improvement to the frequency of coughing. I am curious about using the eggs from this chicken. I have been told DO NOT eat eggs from a chicken on antibiotics but I do not understand why. 250 or 500 mg of amoxicillin can't hurt anyone. It's not like the hen is taking the medicine and making poison out of it so what's the deal? These pills were prescribed to me "just in case" after a root canal and I never needed them, but if I had, the instructions were to take 3 500mg capsules a day. How can the remnants of 50mg a day be an issue? Thanks!!
