    It is now 15 days since the last dose of Baytril for my hen. How long do you abstain from eating eggs from a hen after baytril treatment? What do you do with the eggs that you disregard...do you cook them and feed them back to the chickens? When I called Bayer Animal Health, they were adamant about Never Eating Eggs from the treated hen, but I also note that other sites (UK) post that their vets do not give them a time restriction.

    You input?

    There's a 28 day withdrawal. I cant post the link to reference it though. I dont recommend feeding the eggs back to your birds, it'll extend the withdrawal. Baytril is a potent antibiotic, the eggs have the residue in them. It's best to toss them in the garbage.
