    My chickens were on Corid and Wazing all week last week to treat Coccidiosis (sp?). When is it safe to eat their eggs again? They have been off the medications for 5 days now.

    Also I just barely noticed (after the fact) on the back of the Wazing (dewormer) it said do not use for chickens producing eggs for human consumption!! I didn't even see that!? Will my hens be ok? Will their eggs?

    Wow, I would recommend consulting an avian vet about the matter. I am no vet, but it sounds like traces of the medication would stay in the hen's system for quite a while.

    It seems to me that the information would be on the package insert. Otherwise, call the manufacturer. I think it is 14 days.
