    I never even thought of this until just a few seconds ago! I just got my first egg yesterday and my girls are still on medicated feed! So, is it an obvious no-no on eating the egg? And, yeah, my girls are about 15 weeks old, and I was going to keep them on medicated until 16 weeks and switch to a grower. I am having problems finding grower in pellets, though. [​IMG]

    That's what I thought, but is there a 10 day withdrawal period like some other medications? Or longer? I know not to eat it - when can I eat them? Welp, I need to make a trip to the feed store again. So far, no other eggs, so at least I'm not losing a lot.

    I would say depending on what the chicken has been given, is two weeks.
