    You would be eating an egg laced with a low dosage of bactericidal agent (Baytril).

    Good luck.

    Quote:If you got ill from a bacterial infection, it's possible that the antibiotic your doctor prescribed may take longer to work, or may not work at all...due to bacterial resistance built up in your body by the baytril residue in the eggs that you ate. Edited to add that baytril withdrawal is 28 days. Whether you eat them or not is your choice. Me...I'd toss them in the garbage for 28 days.
