    Ok so today I bought some Sulmet (Antibacterial) to treat all my chickens, just as a preventive maintenace.. How long do I wait to start eating the eggs again after I treat them. On the resiue warning it say "To avoid drug residues in edible flesh, withdraw medication from chickens and turkeys 10 days prior to slaughtered for food." Would yall say 10 days for the eggs too?

    The feed store and vet I use, suggested 2-4 weeks, just to be on the safe side. I think we actually waited between 2 and 3 weeks, and as you can see I'm sitting here typing so I guess it worked [​IMG]
