    Hello to everyone! I've just dewormed my breeders last monday and I want to hatch their eggs asap. Does anyone here now how many days to wait until I can hatch their eggs? I dewormed with a broad spectrum wormer called CT Williams.

    I'm not familiar with that dewormer, but most have an egg withdrawal period of 2 weeks and many dewormers leave a residue in the egg that can can cause problems for the developing embryo, so I'd say to stay on the safe side, wait until 2 weeks after deworming before collecting eggs for hatching.

    Thanks mate I'll update here about the hatch - wheter it's good or bad - coz I've read here about someone who had a bad hatch after deworminh his chickens and said that one must wait AT LEAST a month before collecting eggs for hatching :)

    As promised, I'll be updating this thread on the hatches. My hen is sitting on her nest and is probably laying an egg - she's laid about five now but I've not let her sit on them - it is now past the two week withdrawal period.

    Hatch day tomorrow. Guess I'll be seeing wheter or not the 2 week withdrawal period for dewormers is true or not. 12 fertile eggs in the incubator now.
