    What is a 21-day withdrawal is that a medicine or do you mean do not eat the eggs for 21 days

    This is what the vet on 'Chicken Vet Corner' FB group advises:
    • Tetracycline in water (Duramycin 10) (label dose) -14 days, 8 weeks for sold eggs or known sensitivities


    That's after the last dose...and don't feed eggs back to chickens.
