    When we got our new chicks our pullet wasn't laying yet so I just got medicated feed (all of our chickens eat the same food). We finished the bag and got non medicated feed. How long until we can start eating her eggs? Thanks!!

    Unless someone in your family has drug allergies, in particular an allergy to sulphur drugs, the answer is now.

    Corid, which has the same medicine as in medicated feed (amprolium), has a 24-hour before slaughter residue warning. So one day if you're concerned.
