    Can I collect/ save the eggs I get the same day I start worming my hens? I know the withdrawl is 2 weeks, but does that start the day after the dose of wormer or same day? Sorry if this is a silly question, but I just wanted to be sure.

    Quote:As far as I know the following wormers shouldnt affect a hatch; wazine, safeguard and eprinex.
    The following wormers may affect a hatch; ivermectin pour on and valbazen.
    ETA: With the exception of wazine, I got my information from the manufacturers label directions at Jefferslivestock.com

    Thanks so much. I hate that I can't do anything with these eggs for a few weeks.... It almost hurts me to get rid of them. [​IMG]
