Wickischickies- It would be great to help each other to fight this thing and finding clean stock!! Please feel free to post here on any info you find on MG.
[quote name="Wynette" I'm so sorry you're going through this. These things are just heartbreaking!
I am the type that always looks for the silver lining, and I think in this case, it would be all that you have learned. Although you wish you could have done things differently, what is done, is done, and how you handle it going forward is really what counts! Also, I'm a believer in sharing information - if even just ONE person is helped by this thread, then it was so worth posting it here!
Daron - any hatching going on? (Did you put down your Longcrower trio, and were there any of their eggs in this hatch? )
Wyentte, I have only got rid of the extra roos and the peafowls, and culled over 40 chicks, ages from a week old to 3 months old.
I am hanging on to the others that I have, until I have their offspring tested and received the results in the mail. If clean, then I will save as many eggs that I get for 3 weeks from the hens, then cull every single bird that I have before dipping the eggs in the Tylan solution. If positive, try again one more time with stronger Tylan solution.
I had set 15 Tomaru Longcrower eggs and 7 made it to lockdown. Due date is today.
I have 3 PIPS!!
1 Green Egger Frizzle Fibromelanotic Turken
1 Tomaru Longcrower
Also, one of my Coronation Sussex pullets laid her 2nd egg yesterday!! She is from my first hatch of chicks that I hatched last fall after I had culled my flock. Just in time if the chick's test results comes back negative! So, I am taking that as a good sign!
