    hey chicken friends! i can't find info on this specifically. i've tried digging around in the archives, but i might not be asking the question correctly for the search engine.

    if i put/spray a topical antibiotic on my injured bird, do i need to ditch 30 days worth of eggs (as i would do with oral antibiotics)??

    any info is greatly appreciated! thanks!

    Ermm, Personally, I would. Probably. Maybe... (toss the eggs... or find another use for them...).

    Then again, it can't be any worse than what is in the feed of store bought eggs.... right? [​IMG]

    What topical spray are you using; veterycin, blu-kote, another brand?
