    Which antibiotic?
    If you google "egg withdrawal period for xxx in poultry" you may find the answer.

    Thanks, I will try that.
    I have been doing some research and I'm getting anywhere from 2 days to 3 months as my answer.
    I thought maybe someone here might know the answer.

    One laying hen was on Tylan 50 injections. The rest of the laying hens were on Terramycin in their water.

    Thanks,
    Cathi

    It would seem like the meds would give that information on the container!

    It's really good though that you asked, would sure hate for you or your family to have gotten ill because of it. Glad your chickens are better too! [​IMG]
