I quarentine new birds before they go into pens out at the farm.. They get dusted and dewormed first .. Not quite sure what to do with this one..
I understand, almost made a goof one year and I got a bird that had blue comb thankfully I got him out of there in time before it transferred, I never put birds together unless they're family or a pair/trio and normally don't have reuse pens but when I do I clean them good and re condition the ground so old bird shut don't infect new birds
no sir, I have a couple more in a big pen. I haven't had very good luck with the hatching. I lost 2 nests of Greys and Kelsos last week, one had her nest in the flower bed and the other in the hay barn,both got flooded. We had 20" of rain in the first rain storm, and 10" last week. I had another grey hen kill her chicks as they hatched Thursday before I got home. My incubators are batting 1000 compared to the hens.
