    Not completely sure, but I would think not,since meds may tend to be more highly concentrated in any thing that is excreted or produced by the animal being treated. You might overdose your chickens

    I wouldn't. Just wait till the proper wait time for consumption.

    You would then have to wait until the chickens stop eating the Corid eggs and you are extending the amount of time you will be waiting for eggs that are safe for your own consumption.

    Amprolium (Corid) has zero withdrawal period. You can eat the eggs or feed them back to your flock.
    Amprolium is not an antibiotic, it is a Coccidiostat - it acts as a Thiamine antagonist (Thiamine blocker). The blocker prevents Coccidia from using Thiamine and essentially it starves out.

    It's always a good idea to do some research/reading on any type of medications that you give your chickens to make sure whether there is a withdrawal period.
