    I've read the bag and searched the Internet and I only see a it says do not feed to turkey's or ducks laying eggs for human consumption. I don't see a withdraw period for laying hens. Is there no withdraw period for chickens? I'm just curious incase I should need this product in the future.

    Aureomycin is a tetracycline drug. When it is added to the feed, it doesn't require an egg withdrawal period, only a 7 day withdrawal for the meat. When you use straight Aureomycin or other tetracycline drugs (not in the feed) most people use a 21 day withdrawal time for eggs. Here are 2 good articles to read, the first about the type you have used, and the second about straight Aureomycin:
