    Should I add straw to the compost pile that was used under chicks on medicated starter?

    It occurred to me last night as I was cleaning out the run of some excess straw. I'm not sure if the antibiotics will "cook" out in the compost and I don't want to be fertilizing my garden with some antibiotics. [​IMG]

    Thanks-

    The straw will be okay to add to your pile.

    I asked this question a while back myself. Everyone said it was fine.
