    Reba, my recently medicated hen, is now feeling well enough to start laying again. She was on 5 days of antibiotic. She has been off now for a week. I have been tossing her eggs.

    When is it OK to eat her eggs again? [​IMG]

    It all depends on what sort of antibiotic she was on, most of them have different withdrawal times. What medication was she on?
