Chooks, that would be awesome! I hope we all get more rain soon! :)
Okay, so I don't know if I mentioned it or not, but I had my birds tested with a State vet for Pullorum/Typhoid. The vet is obvious-- K-State guy. I'm the one in the VERY orange shirt. Looks a lot brighter in pictures... wow. hehe!
They pluck a few feathers on the inside of the wing and then pat the area and look for a good vein. Then they poke it to draw blood. They scoop up the blood and rub it on a sheet of glass and drop in the serum. THEN once that is done, they do a throat swab and stick a long swab down the throat and rub it around a bit and stick it in another solution. Once those come up clean, it's on to the next bird! So it was really fun learning how this was done! :)
