    After treating hens with antibiotics, how long do you discard the eggs layed afterwards?

    What I read somewhere was the withdrawal time should be equal to the time on the med (if given the med for 7 days, then another 7 days before keeping the eggs). The only time I've had to give an antibiotic, I doubled the withdrawal time just to be sure.
