Can anyone tell me if it is safe to incubate eggs laid by pullets recently wormed with Valbazen? I know that it is not technically approved for use in poultry, but has been shown to be very effective as a broad spectrum wormer for poultry. So I decided to worm my flock now before spring just to be safe. They have just started laying within the past couple days, and being that now is a good time to start hatching, I would like to start. I know the widely accepted withdrawal period for egg consumption is 2 weeks(14 days), but I was wondering if the same period applied to hatching out chicks, and if hatching eggs laid by hens wormed with valbazen less than 2 weeks ago would cause any deformities, death, low hatch rate, or any other negative side effect. I know wazine can cause deformities or death in chicks hatched out of eggs laid within the withdrawal period. But I was just wondering about valbazen. I can't imagine that the dosage in each egg would be enough to harm a chick in any way, especially since it is safe for adults and given in such small quantities. But I figured I would ask. Better safe than sorry. I don't want to waste my time hatching out dead or deformed chicks.
