  1. Can I eat a bird (nuisance rooster) that's still on pullet grower with antibiotic?

    What is the antibiotic? Different drugs have different withdrawal rules.

    When a feed states that it is medicated, the medication is not an antibiotic. It is medicated usually with Amprolium which is to prevent coccidiosis which is a type of small parasite. Oh, I see you are in Australia so I don't know how your feed is "medicated". If it does in fact contain an antibiotic there will be a withdrawal period listed.
  4. Awesome thanks!
