ok does any one know what this is? I have been reading and talking to friends about it. I had one in my first batch that was just wirthering away and I had to cull it.. that made me never want to have to do it again (if possible) anyway I dont know if this is a teqnicall term but floppy chick.. when they just flop over and lay there..... if you put them up right they just flop back over again. anyway I was talking to a friend and she said to use vanodine as a wash on the eggs 3 days before due to hatch that this kills the staph bacteria on the eggs.... My question is does any one else use vanodine to wash thier eggs propr to hatch day. I do not mean washing bloom off. and its more of a rinse not a total submersion.. if you need more info go to www.vanodine.com I use it for cuts and stuff and it works great. its a great disinfectant that can be sprayed on a cut and kills bad guys on contact... I have used it for pasturella in rabbits its great.. cool thing is you can even disinfect the drinking water... they can drink it and its ok.... so any one else wash eggs?
