    I plan on administering some valbazen to my flock this week and plan on incubating the eggs instead of tossing them. Has anyone else done this before? What was your results?

    Quote:Yep, sure have. I've never shown a difference in hatch rates or hatchability. I've even shipped hatching eggs during this time, with no ill effects. [​IMG]

    I suggest your trying it in an incubator; you don't have anything to lose.
