    It seems our chicks had coccidiosis. We treated them and they are all doing great. That was 3 days ago. The bottle says 10 days for egg layers for withdrawl, but says nothing about meat birds. Will the medication be out of their bodies/muscles soon?
    Also, they are 10 weeks old. Is it time for the sad day? My hubby and I are dreading it, it will be our first time.[​IMG]

    Quote:Please reread the label for withdrawal times. Sulmet is not to be given to egg layers if the eggs are for human consumption. Otherwise it's a 10 day withdrawal period for meat birds for slaughter.
