    I'm not sure if there is a withdrawal time for Amprolium or if there is even enough in the medicated feed to matter. You might want to try and search the internet for that one or call your local feed store that you bought the feed from and ask them. Better yet, maybe someone here will chime in that knows the answer! [​IMG]

    My girls turned 20 weeks old on Friday. The owner of the feed store told me to wait for one week to eat eggs after switching from Medicated food. So now I don't know what to do with this little beauty. It's from my sweet EE and It's perfect.
