Anyone have any recent info on the withdrawal times for eating eggs after a treatment with sulfa antibiotics?

Thank you for the info. I checked with poultry vet and was told 8 weeks. So I guess better safe than sorry, but can't figure out why its that long here and 10 days in Australia.

They usually err on the side of caution, so many will give longer recommendations. Some vets will say that with Baytril (enrofloxacin) you can NEVER eat the eggs again. I think most people follow a 2 to 4 week withdrawl with most medications, many do not have vets recommendations available. I would do what you feel comfortable and safe with. There is no point in making yourself worry. If 8 weeks is comfortable for you, then follow your vets recommendation.
