    Does anyone know if the is a withhold period before processing a rooster treated with miconazole or clotrimazole?
    Thanks

    Interesting question. Was this applied topically?

    How bad is the Favus? Since you will be processing the rooster does he need treatment?

    That's what it looks like to me as well.

    When I have had rooster's combs pecked, they will kind of turn white like that as they are healing. It will stay there for a time as well. A lot of people use coconut oil on dry combs to help. It really doesn't look like favus, but it won't hurt if you choose to put miconazole or Lotrimin on it. I just don't know a meat or egg withdrawal time for those. Below are some rather severe cases of favus, a fungus.
