    ok so we just got done treating our whole flock with tylan 50, ,and we know not to eat any of the eggs for the next two weeks, so we figured we would leave the eggs in the boxes for some nesting box training, maybe everyone would finally figure out to lay in a box and not on the floor. well now one of my hens has gone broody over the little clutch in one of the boxes. my question is along the line of when giving antibiotics, if you dont give the full streangth for the full treatment time, the infectious organisms can develop immunities to the antibiotic. well if she manages to hatch anything out of what shes sitting on, will those babies have that immunity? not sure if this is the right section but any advice would be great.
