    Mycoplasma Mycoplasmosis MG MS (How bad is it??)

    Recently new to chickens, I had a vet come and inspect the farm and all the chickens. She found them all to be in good health and my farm to be clean and in order. She also advised me on normal worming, parasites, chicken health, etc. Later that week, one of our favorites died suddenly. No...

    Risk of Disease?

    Hi all, I'll be driving around today picking up 5 silkies from 3 different places to add to my flock (they are SO hard to find in my area!) I know you're supposed to quarantine for 30 days to ensure the birds are not sick/diseased.. how many people actually do this? I'll certainly keep them...

    NPIP, Import Permit, and Certificate of Veterinary Inspection.

    Eggs being imported have to be NPIP certified in a lot of places. But there's the import permit as well. Now, I'm wondering is the seller responsible for all that or does the buyer have to have the import permit? Cause I saw that the annual import permit form is for the out of state sellers to...

    More NPIP Fun.

    Okay, so I got my NPIP packet in the mail today, and highlighted in the front page of Standard C is "Dogs, cats, sheep, cattle, horses, and swine should never have access to poultry operations." We live on a farm, how is this possible? Does it mean that the chickens shouldn't be able to get...

    Questions regarding Npip

    We would like to start selling eggs/chicks, but I suspect some of our birds might be carrying MG.(or it's another respiratory thing, I don't know) We free range, so it's possible they've picked it up from wild birds. If birds are found to carry MG- are you required to cull them all? Or can you...
