    HI all,

    I recently had a little outbreak of cocci in my two 6 week olds, and since my pullets were in contact with them I treated with will a mild dosage of sodium sulfamethazine, the pullets have yet to lay for me but if they do in the next week will I need to throw out the eggs ? [​IMG]

    As far as I know, the only ones that shouldn't be eating eggs from a hen treated for coccidiosis is anyone allergic to sulphur drugs. Others may have more info.
