I am treating my laying hen with Terramycin for 7 days and it says on the package not to eat the eggs when on the Antibiotics. How long do we have to wait untill we can eat the eggs again? Does anybody have any Idea about this? Thanks

Sorry for the wait, welcome.

Here is a handy chart to download (pdf). Withdrawl times of various (approved) meds for chooks:

7days is recommended.

Many meds are prohibited in laying hens (FDA/EPA/FAO) focus on commercial producers and are strict to the `vanished degree').

Actual clearance time formulas, for those meds, can be tracked down, with a bit of patience, online.
