Bayril for chickens

Hi everyone I have had chicken respitory problems for the last month, iv had my chickens on tylosin that worked brilliantly then three days later they sick again,
Now today vet recommended Baytril so I'm just wondering

Can I eat the eggs if they are on it?? I dunno what the withdrawal period is so need some help!!!

It has a 7 day meat withdrawal so I wouldn't eat the eggs for around 10/15 days after they are finished treatment even though it is probably harmless.

You can never eat the eggs again. Had that experience myself last year and had to cull 5 hens. Tylan or poulry respite is also very good its a natural alternative to antibiotics.

You would probably be better off culling everything,disinfecting the whole shebang and staring again.
If drugs have worked and then the infection shows again you have a serious problem and no matter whats used you,ll end up goin round in circles.
Only buy stock from reliable trustworthy sources and avoid mixing birds from different sources at markets.

Thanks guys for the info, I don't think I'll be culling them I don't have the heart

Vet said try this and if they still have problems give them worm dose but I use Diatomaceous earth so I don't think it worms

Oh well just see how it plays out I suppose

You can eat the eggs - Baytril just isn't licensed for use in egg producings birds as they didn' trial it and work out the withdrawal period. I'd be happy to use eggs 30 days from the last day of treatment
