    I treated my hens yesterday with ivermcetin and would like to know how long I need to wait until I can incubate the eggs from the hen? I have some people wanting chicks soon,and would like to start it up soon,thanks! I was thinking 10 days,,but that's for the eating withdrawal period,is it the same for hatching?

    I use ivermectin all the time, and never stopped hatching eggs from those hens. I do stop eating the eggs, but hatching still continues. And I don't have any problems as far as I can tell (on my third year of year-round hatches too).
