    Hello. I just lost a beautiful Welsummer (cocci was suspected). So I'm treating the rest of the flock with sulpha-nox. Does anyone know how long I have to wait to eat their eggs again after stopping treatment?

    Thank you!

    I think it is 2 weeks, but am not sure. I would research it more, if you have time.

    Think it depends on the product you use for cocci.....

    I'm looking for this info as well. My vet suggested waiting 48 hours after Corid, but also said to look online. Doh!

    generally it is 10 days after the birds have been taken off the medication
    I am always prone to help the chickens restore the good gut flora
    as this is what they need after having medication
    now the

    natural probiotic recipe is is:
    1 qt of dry crumbles
    2 qts of milk, sweet, sour, or buttermilk or a mixture of all or some ( you can sour milk with 3 tbsp of ACV per gallon, put unused sour milk in frig till used)
    1/4 cup of non flavored yoguart ( no artificial sweetmer)
    mix good and feed
    chicks 2 tsp full
    Adults need 3 tbsp full
    and what they will clean up in 20-30 minutes
    then clean wet feeders and restock dry crumbles

    do this once a day for a week
    then once a week for life

    All the while after medicating the birds use
    2 tbsp per gallon of the chicken water so their gut flora wil be regulated
    they should have this at least 3-5 days a week
    then three days aweek after they are over coccidiosis

    PS REMEMBER if feeding medicated boiled eggs to chickens it prolongs the time that you will be able to eat the eggs.
    you will be feeding the medication back to the chickens
