    Medication is Amprollium?

    Per the food and drug administration withdrawal time is 24 hours. The manufacturer claims no withdrawal time. So feed something else the last day. When I butcher, my birds aren't getting any food for at least 12 hours, so that is 1/2 the withdrawal time right there.

    Read what it says on your feed tag. It will tell you if/how long of a withdrawal the feed you were feeding has.
