Of course, if anyone has any sickness in their flock or has had any prior to sales of chicks and/or hatching eggs, they should notify any potential buyer because even though the survivors may not have shown sign of the illness they could still be carriers in that they were exposed and now they are bringing it into your flock. Same way people are contaminating their entire flocks just by going to a show or even the feed store.
SO, by going to a show or the feed store .... everyone is at risk. Go to the feed store, then sell chicks you hatched a couple weeks prior, and not knowingly you have sold potentially sick chicks. Correct?
This is sooooooo confusing to me. Resistance or immunization, such a tough decision!
There are some great speeches and videos of Joel Salatin on Youtube. He and his farm (PolyFace Farm) have been my inspiration.
Here's a link to his website:
For those that haven't heard of him - it's worth the research. He talks about how his farm is always open to visitors and how they don't have to change their clothes or step in bleach or chemicals in order to walk around his farm because his animals are naturally healthy, being raised on pasture and not chemicals.
