the exposed bird was quarantined for 3 weeks, i did not quarantine it for many month and that was exactly what was disclosed to that farmer. I do not gamble. More than that I did follow up with him on the sick bird test results. I was lied to, he told me the bird was not contagious according to lab tests it had a little respiratory and that's all he has disclosed (which he did not provide). On that information, the exposed to the sick bird hen as returned to the flock and spread mg. I'm not stupid to return contagious bird. I was told it was not, and lies is what I do not appreciate at all.
And let' put it this way, show birds are out for exhibit not longer than 48h due to AI, my exposure was 4h total if that, all the bedding was destroyed (burned), tub, exposed tubes were bleached to smithereens, clothing sanitized, bio security was followed. and 3 weeks quarantine by the book. So I guess that by the book did not work. MS indeed can have 21 days incubation period, for mg it is 6-7 by the book, lives in house for 24h, on clothing up to 2 days, on human hair up to 3 days, can not survive outside of viable medium, caries can be asymptomatic, can test negative, vaccinated birds will test positive and remain carriers. The sick bird was exposed to the hybrid sexlink, the only not purebred chicken i had. It's the pure breeds, rare breed got sick visibly, 6-7 days incubation and respiratory is present in mild form, by the book, each one with any signs of respiratory was isolated immediately to sick bay for 3 weeks, and the breed i happen to have according to the native for the freed literature is particularly susceptible to micoplasma. Sexlink did show nasal discharge in 3 month in very mild form, if I did not see it I would not know, does dry in an instant and nothing one can see at all. I kept asking that farmer what did he have and all I got was complete denial aka his chickens do not get sick business.
