    We have our chickens on some medicine, after they finish the medicine, how long until we can safely eat their eggs again?

    Depends on the medicine. Varying medicines clear the body at varying rates of speed. Do a search on the particular type of medicine, and it should tell how long to wait after treatment is completed.
