    [​IMG] My Dominique hens are on DuraMycin because one of them has been coughing and sneezing. I know we can't eat the eggs for 10 days after they get of the medicine. My question is can I put their eggs in the incubator or would the chicks be deformed from the antibiotic? I can't isolate the one hen because the isolation pen is next to the Dom pen. My husband is working on making a pen truly away from the rest of them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thanks, Amy
