    I have had my girls on Corid since Sunday, and dewormed them on Monday. How long should I wait until I eat the eggs?

    I don't think that there is any withdrawal period for Corid, so you don't have to worry about that. What dewormer did you use? The withdrawal period might be on the bottle.

    There isnt a withdrawal period using the corid 9.6% liquid solution. There's a one day withdrawal period using the corid 20% soluable powder.
    The wormer will most likely have withdrawal period like Wyandottes7 stated.

    I used Safeguard. I'll check the bottle. The Corid only had bovine instructions. Guess they didn't figure the cows would lay too many eggs.

    Safeguard...14 days withdrawal after last dosing. Your hens will thank you and live a long time after using safeguard.

    Thank you! I just read the bottle & it said that goats can't be slaughtered for meat for. 6 days. I was going to figure 6 days for eggs so I'm glad you chimed in.
