    There's no info on egg withdrawal, but there's no meat withdrawal. Not sure though.

    ETA: It's labeled for all chickens, not just non-layers.

    I understood there to be no withdrawal, as it is a thiamine inhibitor and not an antibiotic. Coccidia require lots of B1 to multiply, and the amprolium (brand name Corid or Amprol) prevents its uptake. It essentially starves them out.

    Here is the Merck Vet Manual link to the withdrawal times for coccidiosis drugs FYI ~

    And for anyone interested, here is the link to the main Merck Vet Manual page (look for POULTRY):

    Hope that helps. I welcome any other comments or corrections to this information, as always.
