    We had a hen that wasn't laying, just sitting around and sounded like she was sneezing. We were told to worm the flock so we used revolution drops (3 total). Can we still eat the eggs after treating them with this? The hen layed an egg a couple days after the worming. Now we don't know if we need to throw them away.

    Quote:I can't find any info googling revolution or selemectin and withdrawal in chickens. I'm guessing you are using it off label. I'm thinking you might want to forego the eggs for a couple weeks. But gotta say I really don't know for sure.

    Thanks. Actually, the vet prescribed the revolution for worms and he said to wait a month so I guess that's what we'll do. I was just hoping someone else had used this and I just don't like the idea of getting rid of all those beautful eggs! [​IMG]
