    Quote:I have been told to treat the whole flock if one is found to have it. I have a 2 gallon waterer and I mix 1 tblspn per gallon of water. You should be able to get corrid at any farm store but I found that my local Tractor Supply did not carry it and I had to go to Southern States. It was around 15 bucks but it will last you a while.

    Quote:I believe it says on the bottle, mine did...if it doesn't mine says let them have a 24 hour withdrawal before slaughtering (cows) So I would not eat the eggs. Maybe someone else can pitch in...Mine arent laying yet and Im not for sure but better safe than sorry. You want to treat for at least a week.

    so does this mean after they are done with the meds it's ok to eat the eggs but don't eat them while they are on it correct?
