Re: So about those darn mites!!

Is using any of these medicines, i.e. ivermectin, frontline etc. make the eggs inedible for a period of time?
I'm scratching my head..... need to check my birds now after I come home from work tomorrow.

Re: So about those darn mites!!

Yes some would have an egg withdrawal, probably both the two you have mentioned in particular because they are systemic (go into the chicken's blood system). Since they are not registered for use on chickens the withdrawal would need to be estimated based on milk or slaughter withdrawal for other animals for ivemectin. For Frontline as it is for dogs I have no idea what it would be but if it continues to work for a long time the withdrawal would also be lengthy in my opinion.
