Incubatiing Eggs from Chickens Treated with Anti-Biotics?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I know that I have to withhold the eggs from chickens treated with anti-biotics, but was wondering if those eggs could be incubated?  Has anyone done this?

I have and had no problems, but from what i seem to recall, some other members do have concerns about doing so. I just thought i'd give it a shot and see what happened - nothing out of the usual and they are now adults and laying very nicely.

Yes, it seems such a waste to ditch the eggs when I friend is setting up her incubator and has 6 spots left.....

It's no problem at all. I have done it before. I have no idea way anyone would think it was a problem, maybe you can't claim the chicks to be "organic"?
