    I was wondering, the grinder that I will be Using for the chickens is the same one that we mix cattle feed in. Yes, it's a big PTO grinder. Anyway, I was wondering of trace amounts of bovatec would be harmful to the chickens. I won't be putting any in there, but there will most Likely be a little left over in the grinder itself. Thanks in advance!

    My gut tells me that the amounts would be so minute as to not present a problem.

    But, if it happened to be more, would the bovatec hurt them?

    I doubt that it would hurt them, but not certain about the sensibility of eating them or their eggs.
