    My vet perscribed Keflex 250 mg orally to one of my hens for puncture wounds (presumably dog bite). I finished the pills nearly 2 weeks ago. How long before I can safely eat her eggs?

    Might be okay now, but double check with your vet.:D

    This article lists many of the drugs used on poultry. Apparently cephalexin can be found in eggs for a long time after use (>21 days in the yolk).
