Need some ADVICE

OK so my birds are on antibiotics for uri, my question is, is it safe for me to hatch their eggs still? The chick's will be used for eating and eggs once old enough. Thank you

Honestly, I throw out all eggs when any of my birds are on antibiotics. There is a withdrawal period for any antibiotics that are given, and depending on the type you are feeding, the timeframe can differ. The general withdrawal period is 3-4 weeks after the last dose of antibiotic has been given. Having said that, there MIGHT be an antibiotic that is safe for fetal development but you would need to look at a drug compendium book  for verification.
