My chickens just started laying eggs, but I've been feeding them medicated feed. How long after I take them off the medicated feed before the eggs are safe to eat?
That's good to know. I won't get eggs till August as well. I have 8 chicks 5 for eggs and 3 for meat. I bought them the big bag of medicated starter in April when I got them an it just ran out two weeks ago so now they are on grower feed. Will the medicated feed do anything to ruin the meat birds meat? The meat birds have maybe another month left. They also eat my grass and left over veggies and what not. They love watermelon.HerkNav said:I was using chick starter. I'm not a huge fan of the antibiotics either, but I bought my chicks locally and the breeder recommended using medicated starter. I was going to take them off of it as soon as their current feed runs out, which will be this week. I didn't expect to start getting eggs until August, so I didn't think it would be an issue. I was told that the medicated feed makes the eggs toxic.
