I got word back today from LSU......mycoplasma positive =(
Recommendation is depopulate, decontaminate and start over. The state vet is going to give me instructions for Decon and protocol for future prevention. I will let you guys know what the protocol is for informational purposes in case it happens to anyone else. I hope no one else has to deal with this but I guess mother nature has a mind of her own. Although I don't think I helped the situation going to swaps and bringing in adults and what not.....I'll probably cull the rest of the flock this weekend and start the Decontamination process. Wish me luck
Ended up culling and burning the remaining hens. Ag dept vet recommended to spray everything down with 10:1 water to bleach solution, let that dry then lime the entire yard and stir into the soil. It took about 6 bags of lime. He said I would probably be good after a week but I'm waiting a month before doing anything. In the meantime, I built a tractor and ordered some hatchery layers to be delivered in the next couple of weeks.
So sorry to here the guy wasn't up front with you. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts that it's only a random sneeze from pollon or something simple like that. The Ag vet said you can buy a disinfectant from Jeffers . I'm going to get some it is what he used to spray his boots, truck tires etc. before and after coming on my property . Pam
That sucks.....I hope it's nothing major. The stuff Pam is talking about is this - http://www.jefferspet.com/products/tek-trol-disinfectant-gallon. It's called Tek-Trol
