    My hen has a 3 week old chick and she layed her first egg (since she went broody) today.
    She has been eating medicated chick starter right along with the baby. How long should I wait before I can start keeping her eggs again?

    Ive been told 21 days after their last consumption of the medicated. Some say less and a few say longer but 2ound 3 weeks seems to be the average time. Its what i do and i have not had any problems thus far. Seems like forever, i know! Lol

    3 weeks sounds good. Thanks for answering.
