yes I can, but we are told we need to submit forms and get them approved, its a paperwork and hassle with getting Nan to ok it. She has told me more than once it has to be a good reason for it. lol
so you are saying that this would be next to impossible for me,,,,,I have birds coming in every 2 weeks,,,even though they are seperated from the layer flock I would need to test them and that is not gonna happen for birds that will only be there for 5 to 12 weeks
Hey wing, most people don't adhere to the rules I find!
But as we have seen it CAN bring up big issues and devastate an entire flock and others peoples flocks and once you have a major disease it does effect any future flocks, Nan totally discourages future flocks on the same site depending on the disease/s and how long it can survive the ground, and domain in general. But again, most do not adhere, this why there is so much disease, no one cares its all out for the buck unfortunately.
I will adhere to what I can, if there is a will there is a way to do things right! What better gal to find them lol
