    I am getting some hatching eggs next week and I am concerned about mycoplasma. I have read that you can inject the eggs with Tylosin in the aircell of the egg on the 9th day of incubation. Does anyone know the correct dosage? I also have Denagard. Is that better to use? Thanks

    First off what is mycoplasma? Eggs are the perfect environment made by Mother Nature I would not worry about any diseases inside the egg. By injecting anything into the egg you are breaking the perfect environment of the egg. I would think the chick would be more prone to diseases afterwards.
