Hope this is the right place for my question.....

If you have used Gallimycin on your chickens, what is the length of the egg discard/withdrawal period?
Also -- do you feed the eggs back to your hens or dogs?

Thanks for anyone's experience/opinions.

Quote:Withdrawal for gallimycin is 24 hours. Discard the eggs in the garbage. Feeding discarded eggs to hens extends the withdrawal period because of the residue in the egg. I wouldnt feed it to dogs neither. You dont want bacterial resistance built up when you truly need to use an antibiotic.

Man, Dawg, I have to say I am breathing a sigh of relief! I used the Gallimycin on my laying hens. A friend who shows and judges poultry gave it to me to use, so I did not have the package to read. I ordered it and got a package of Gallimycin today, and it says not to use Gallimycin in hens used for laying eggs! I currently have the hens on a 3-week withdrawal from Wazine right now, so I am happy to hear you say such a short withdrawal period on Gallimycin! I know a lot of these antibiotics, etc are used, even though it says not to use them in laying hens, due to liability, I guess, even if there is only a 24-hour withdrawal period! I was afraid I would just end up with 50 pets, rather than layers! I have said it before - Dawg, you da MAN! Thanks!

Thanks again SO much! I have been stewing over all this since the nightmare with the worms began, then respiratory, etc. I am SO relieved, you cannot imagine! My egg numbers are really going up now, so I am just one happy camper! My vet is the one who told me that the Wazine withdrawal period was 17 days, but she recommended a full 3 week withdrawal. In any event, I am happy! Thanks just one more time!
