    I noticed one of my hens that had watery eye with bubbles. Looked it up on this forum and believe its respiratory. I went and bought some Tylan and gave 1cc. Two questions 1) do I treat all the hens or just the sick one? 2) while giving the medicine are the eggs they lay still eatable? New to chickens and have had good luck with using this site. Thanks for your help!

    Withdrawal time is 24 hours for slaughter, but there is no withdrawal for eggs since the medication is not to be used on commercially laid eggs. That means it's up to you to decide, I guess.
