Corid- what to do with eggs?

Discussion in 'Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures' started by Tikkijane, Feb 7, 2012.

  1. I'm re-reading, but can't seem to find a definitive answer on eating eggs- can we eat them at any point (after treatment? during treatment?)?

    Are we still treating for 5 days?

    Thanks.

    I have no idea about human consumption of Corrid eggs, but when I have eggs I'm not so sure about, they get cracked, microwaved, and fed back to the chickens. I do this even with the non-fertile or undeveloped eggs I remove from the incubator.
     
  3. The thing with medications, as I understand it, (like Sulmet) is that it will linger in their eggs, in which case you don't want to feed them back. And, as far as I know, cocci feeds on protein, which means cutting back on things like feeding back eggs, BOSS, etc.

    Blech. I am just not finding credible links this morning!!

    One of the great thing about chickens is that usually not much goes to waste, so this stuff is particularly challenging. :(
