The egg injection sites utilized were the air cell and the small end (albumen), and the antibiotics used were tylosin at two different doses (3 mg or 5 mg per egg) and gentamicin (0.6 mg/egg). For the chicks treatment, a combination of spectinomycin and lincomycin, diluted in dextrose-vitamin complex solution, was employed. The differences in hatchability for the egg air cell-embryo (17.2%), egg small end (albumen)-3mg tylosin (72.4%) and egg small end (albumen)-5mg tylosin (42.1%) injection procedures were significantly different by Chi-square analysis (p
