    Hi there,

    Does anybody have experience using a Tylan based dip as a pre-treatment for hatching eggs to reduce transmission of mycoplasma to the chicks? I am looking for details on how to prepare the Tylan solution (ie. how much tylan soluble powder per litre of water), and feedback on how your hatch turned out.

    I have not heard of using Tylan, but I have heard of using Oxine, and we use that here.


    ETA: Tylan is not a surface disinfectant, so it wouldn't do any good to waste it on dipping eggs. Oxine is a surface disinfectant, that is not harmful to the egg or animals.http://www.shagbarkbantams.com/oxine.htm
