    First question...After reading everyone's posts, I realized I should take the water out of my incubator because my humidity was to high, almost 60. It's still high. How can I bring it down? Also, I have a sick rooster who is having a hard time breathing, almost like he has bronchitis. The first day was his worst as he couldn't crow, just making an awful screeching sound. He doesn't make this sound anymore, but doesn't crow either. My girl at TS that I trust told me to treat everybody with tetracycline for a week, as he may be contagious, but I can't eat the eggs for the next 2 weeks. Is this so?

    Not sure about the humidity but I do know that you can't eat the eggs of your hens while they are on medication, but I think it's worth it to medicate them anyway...
