    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.
