x 100 literally Every chick due to hatch today and tomorrow (45)have to be removed from the Bator. The current risk to the others can be mitigated by dipping all the other eggs or fumigating the Bator before they start breathing since hatch is stressful they will ahead ms immediately.
The experts fron NC vet school and research facility specializung in poultry have said the locals are wrong. The odds are not small that they have mycoplasma synoviae spread vertically, but will have it worse and spread it Horizontally.
Why did no one else I talked to sooner. Now these fully developed chicks have to be killed, and we have to fumigate the Bator or clean with bleach. She is checking with the main research guy on mycoplasma and will get back to us on the best hope for our other eggs. We will also have to keep them separate until they can be tested.
I need a good guy or someone to help me cull
Do you still have live birds outside?
If so any new chicks you hatch will also almost certainly be exposed to it from your clothes/skin/hair.
