    If I am giving the hens antibiotics can I eat the eggs or do I have to get rid of them?

    I am curious to know under what other conditions do I stop eating the eggs though.

    For antibiotics you stop using them. It depends what you are using to how long, I think but, I've heard up to a month.

    Supposedly it's for any allergies that you or your family might have...

    I'm going to post this out again just cause I'm not really sure about the answers, so if anyone can tell me if I can still eat my eggs while they are on and after they finish a treatment of Terramyacin would be appreciated.
    If I can't eat them, how long should I wait.
