    I just finished up a week long dosing of Duramycin on my hens. They finished up Sunday. My question is about eating the eggs. I have been cooking their eggs for the last week and feeding them back to the hens but when can I start eating them?
    I read somewhere 3 days and also that I can keep feeding the eggs back to the hens until the 3 days is up, but won't that keep the Duramycin in their systems, thus making the eggs still unsafe for me to eat?
    I am giving them eggs and yogurt for the good bacteria. I am not sure if I sould stop feeding them eggs or what...anyone got any idea?

    Hmm...I was told to wait two weeks after stopping treatment. I fed them back to the chickens for the duration of that time.
