When using Avitrol+, do people withhold fertile eggs from the incubator as well as the cooking pot? Always - sometimes - never??

Does the type of treatment come into the decision - are eggs incubated from the two-week period after Ivermectin, Cydectin or other on or off-label poultry treatment for scaly leg mite, worms, etc?

I wouldn't worry about waiting for a period of time after treating the birds - I'd go ahead and set the eggs. Most likely the quantity of any product in the eggs is zero.

Thanks 70%. Incubating these Silkie eggs is difficult enough as they fit very short laying times between broody times: so there is never a big window of egg collecting time.
