Safe to eat eggs with Amprollum in the feed?

    I used the search feature because I know this has been asked before but it didn't bring up any posts with amprollum in it.

    I have a mixed batch of chick/chickens and I want to make sure the eggs are safe to eat. I can't keep the bigger hens from eating the grower feed when I feed the littler ones.
    Thanks

    I had this same situation, and the whole issue didn't even cross my mind until I had already been eatin gthe eggs for several weeks. That was almost a year ago, and I appear to be none the worse for wear!

    I believe that it's not toxic. I remember someone, Speckledhen maybe? mentioned that there's not a withdrawl period for the medicated feed. My hens get into it too, and I've been eating their eggs for a couple of years now.

    It is safe to eat. There is no withdrawal time with amprolium. It is just a cocciodicant so it's safe. If you have sulfa containing feeds, then you have to wait 10 days.

    You are good to go.
