A disease so bad I'll have to get rid of all my girls???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I had an appointment yesterday and while I was waiting my turn I was visiting with a man ( about chickens of course ) who told me that he so enjoyed his birds until  they developed that disease ( he couldn't remember the name ) that there is no cure for except to get rid of all his birds for several years. I'm horrified, I've never heard of such a thing.  Does anyone know what this terrible disease is and what might cause it and for heaven sake how do I prevent it????  Any help with this would be appreciated.

Could it have been Marek's disease?  That sounds pretty bad, and here they give the babies innoculations against that.
