    An old farmer was telling me a true story of what happened to him,he hatches eggs in his large incubator all the time,anyway he hatched out some turkeys that kept dieing then put put them in with bigger turkeys in the brooder they also started dieing. His thoughts were that an egg transmiited diease caused this he then sanitized his incubator & never bought eggs from that source again.

    Quote:I also believe this to be true! and I have had it happen to me!! PUT some antibiotic in the water- the feed stores has it in powder form... it works! --clean your bator REALLY,REALLY good & use lysol
