    My roo was just given a shot of Ivermectin by the vet and he's on an antibiotic and pain meds...but he's still managing to fertilize all my eggs. :) Are they safe to eat...even for my little kids?

    There shouldnt be a problem. However if it were a hen that was being treated, I'd recommend a withdrawal period.
