Hi there, I have a flock of 12 hens I have treated with permethrin 10 for mites/lice. I followed the recommended instructions from manufacture. I couldn't find any information on egg withdrawal was hoping to know when I can start eating their eggs again? Found some information online from larger a hatchery that stated permethrin can be found most hightened in eggs 7 days after treatment. Hoping to know if there is a waiting period at all? Thank you!

To my knowledge there is no stated withdraw period for treated hens laying eggs, the research has not be done. So, for maximum security, discard the eggs for 14 days.
