    Hi all.

    I wormed my girls last week with Pig Swig liquid wormer. I just called the company that makes the stuff to ask about an egg withdrawal period, and they recommended 72 hours. This seems like an awfully short period. What have others used as a withdrawal period for this product or other piperazine wormers?

    Thanks in advance.

    Quote:I've never heard of Pig Swig, probably dont sell it around here. Piperazine withdrawal for slaughter for turkeys and chickens is 14 days, swine 21 days. If the chicken is ok to eat after the 14th day, so are the eggs.

    I have brand name wazine 17. Main ingredient is piperazine. It says on the bottle do not give to chickens producing eggs for human consumtion. Like said 14 day withdrawl time for meat chickens and turkeys.
