I so love my hubby, I can't see well at night so he is making the 30 minute drive to the post office hub so I can pick up my first set of bielefelder eggs.
Be so happy that when others look at you they become happy too

Kat knows her antibiotics!  and with these eggs as they are, Lord knows they need all our help

I've heard that you can clean eggs with oxine diluted with water and its supposed to kill more germs and pathogens than bleach can.

I've also heard of a tylan bath for eggs though that one was supposed to prevent the spread of MG and required heating the eggs up then plunging them into in ice bath of tylan solution for 15 minutes. I tried it once after an MG scare in my flock. Most of the eggs did hatch. I'll have to look and see if I can find the page that had this info on it. I know it's not what you were looking for but you just reminded me of it.

@Sally Sunshine what was the pdf link for? I linked that study and the one with duck eggs in my other thread.
The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

EGG DIPPING SOLUTION

This procedure has been used to destroy pathogenic organisms such as Mycoplasma spp. that can be carried on the hatching eggs. The procedure must be conducted exactly as described, and is not intended as a routine hatching egg treatment. The procedure is only used in unusual situations.

The antibiotic solution contains 500 ppm gentamycin sulfate
(1 gram per 2 liters of water) or 1 gram tylosin per liter of water.

The hatching eggs must be carefully washed, rinsed, and sanitized prior to treatment. The eggs are then prewarmed to 100 degrees F. for 3-6 hours and immediately submerged into the antibiotic solution that has been previously cooled to 60 degrees F. The eggs are left in the antibiotic solution for 15 minutes before being placed into the incubator.

After each day's use, the solution must be sterilized by heating to 160 degrees and maintained for 10 minutes. Any water lost during sterilization must be replaced. Refrigerate the solution in a clean covered container between uses to prevent bacterial contamination. Do not use or store solutions for more than three days after dilution.

 

FUMIGATION OF HATCHING EGGS AND EQUIPMENT

Preincubation of hatching eggs and equipment

Mix .6 gram potassium permanganate (KMnO4) with 1.2 ml formalin for each cubic foot of space.
-or-
2 oz KMnO4 and 4 fl oz formalin per 100 ft3 space.

Mix both ingredients in an earthenware or heat resistant container having at least ten times the capacity of the ingredients being added. Circulate the gas for 20 minutes at 70 degrees F. or higher. Equipment without eggs can be allowed to fumigate overnight before exhausting the formaldehyde gas.

Fumigating eggs in incubator

Mix .4 gram KMnO4 and .8 ml formalin per ft3
-or-
1.5 oz KMnO4 and 3 fl oz formalin per 100 ft3

Follow the same guidelines as discussed for equipment fumigation. Do not fumigate chicken eggs between the 24th and 96th hours of incubation. Other species of birds may need the incubation intervals adjusted to compensate for total incubation time in relationship to the chicken's incubation period. It is best to incubate after the incubator reaches normal operating temperature and humidity.

This does interest me... Can both these drugs be heated, cooled and heated again?

beats me......  who could we ask?  phage?

I want to get through soon, because as soon as the nights get above freezing (upper 30's and low 40's), the chicks are moving out of the basement. I would move them sooner, but the basement remains a steady 58F-60F and I don't want to risk losing them to hypothermia.

 

I know I've shown them before, but here are the coop doors today:

 

 

I didn't realize just how big the 9 week old BR's were getting until I (attempted to) measured them. I also noticed they can stand flat-footed and peck the wire at the top of the brooder... which is 24" from the floor. Here is a pic of them standing normally behind the end of an 18" zip tie (camera level with top end):

 

Love it Joey!!

 

 

thanks

Putting my eggs on lock down.   I have 23 eggs left in the incubator.  Air cells still look a bit small, but all have grown - some a lot more than others since day 14.  ...I left room for improvement in record keeping and will weigh eggs next time. 

I've removed my turner (not just turned it off), and I have added/layered paper towels to hold water to try to help get the humidity up.  Vent is still out. 

 

1) Can the eggs get wet, or will that cause problems?

2) My eggs are laying horizontal.  Should I be putting them in a carton so they don't roll or be placing them vertical, air cell side up?   I didn't catch all the discussion on this - I have always kept them horizontal in the past...but my problems of late seem to occur after lockdown...
