I'm not gonna lie, this week has sucked. Found out the birds in my quarantine pen have MG, I had chicks hatching from that coops and needed to cull the chicks and the actively hatching eggs. -Cause that's why I signed up for this whole poultry thing....so I can be a chick killer.
Apparently there is a way to hatch eggs out of infected birds by giving the eggs a 'Tylan Ice Bath', looks complicated and a real PIA, but my son loves these birds and wants to move forward with their line. We haven't even recovered from last year's Mycobacterium, seriously with this?...

do you have a link to the article for the tylan ice bath? I have a few eggs from the girls I had to put down and my lavender roo that had to go. I'doesn't really like to keep their bloodlines. I loved those birds
Unfortunately we lost one of our Bourbon red poults tonight
he was 2 weeks old today. A few days ago, he started acting very lethargic and weak. I managed to perk him up with some electrolytes and scrambled eggs for a day or so but he was just too weak. I came home tonight and he was gone
the other 4 are still doing great and are growing like little weeds (@SilkieSensation
-the 3 from you are all doing wonderful).
