    Check the FDA website, I found out I could eat my hens eggs 2 days after we discontinued antibiotics.

    How did you find this? I looked, but didn't see where it indicated how long before you could consume the eggs.

    I have heard of this problem, you can go to the website of the maker of your feed and it should tell you how long it takes to flush the antibiotics out of your hens after being taken off that feed. I bypassed this all and got feed store crumbles that only have an added thiamine blocker with vitamins, what I read was that the eggs were fine to eat while phasing it out with layer. We've been eating them and have no problems, now they're almost completely on layer.

    FROM MY PET CHICKEN
    Starting January 1, you will only be able to purchase this product through a veterinarian! We have put our remaining Tetroxy HCA on "final clearance" sale.

    Oxytetracyclene is a broad spectrum, highly concentrated antibiotic powder for administration in the drinking water of chickens. Indications for chickens: for control of infectious synovitis caused by Mycoplasma synoviae; chronic respiratory disease (CRD) and air sac infections caused by Mycoplasma gallisepticum and Escherichia coli; control of fowl cholera caused by Pasturella multocida, susceptable to tetracyclene.



    9.87 oz size is sufficient to medicate 128-512 gallons of water, depending on the recommended dosage. Mix fresh solution daily and use as the sole source of drinking water. Administer 7 to 14 days to chickens. The drug manufacturer warns to not use this product in birds producing eggs for human consumption, but most veterinarians will tell you to withdraw eggs during treatment and 10 days after treatment; please consult your doctor or veterinarian before making any decisions.

    Also please consider offering your chickens this probiotic product after treatment with this antibiotic. Not only will it help their immune and digestive systems bounce back, but it is shown to prevent bacterial infection in the first place!
