Injecting eggs and mycoplasma (GREAT MG discussion re:Lincospectin)

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. Has anyone ever tried this or know the correct dosage? It say 2.5mg for Tylosin but not sure what that is in ml. I also have Denagard. Is that better to use?

I have read about egg dipping and they say its not as reliable as injecting the antibiotic

Most people I know that are into that go with the dipping method.

Mycoplasma...

The very best way to combat this is to get an antibiotic called Linco-Spectin 100 from your vet.  You use 1/4 tsp/ litre of water for the first 3-5 days after hatch, then a booster in the water for 1-2 days, 4 weeks later.  All chicks treated will be Mycoplasma resistant for LIFE!

Oh, and Linco-Spectin is about half the price of Tylan and you use much less.

It is better than Denagard. Linco-Specton was developed specifically for poutry and its treatment against MG.

If you want to do the research, egg dipping is an old but effective treatment against MG. However, it is not considered a solution to the MG problem. When a flock tested MG positive, it was found that by treating the eggs in a dip solution before incubation, the chicks hatched could be MG negative. The positive birds could then be culled, bloodlines not lost, and carrier birds not created that would spread the disease.

Why would you want to treat for something that you don't necessarily have? Doesn't that lead to antibiotic resistance?

Re: Injecting eggs and mycoplasma (GREAT MG discussion re:Lincospectin)

Linco is for CHICKS as a PREVENTATIVE,  Denegard for ADULTS as a TREATMENT/CURE

Tegaan, I take my birds to shows and and purchase/trade birds from outside sources.  I quarantine birds that arrive.  I treat any problems that show up and use the Linco as a preventative because the birds that go to shows are exposed to other birds that do have issues.

I find an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

I have never encountered antibiotic resistance in any of my animals.  I think the key is to follow the instructions on the package most scrupulously.  Resistance happens when the correct strengths are not used and when treatment time is shortened.  It is important to understand how antibiotics work.  If you treat a strength of antibiotic that is below recommended levels or until the symptoms merely disappear and do not complete the skull course of treatment you may develop resistance.
