    One of our hens was badly rooster pecked and had some staples put in her head and was given a week's worth of Baytril/22.7mg.
    She fi ished the med. last wed. 2/23. Our vet said not to eat her eggs for awhile....then said, I think, a MONTH.
    As she has just today started laying again we are questioning that length of time.
    The roo is gone and she is fine with the other hens-we hate keeping her alone (unhappy and wreaking havoc) in the garage that long.
    Did I hear the vet correctly? (I WILL call her back but wanted to get other input).
    thanks
