Looking for ideas for myself and for other members on what methods you use to bring new birds into your flock. I was an idiot years ago and would just bring a new bird in and drop them in a run until I killed about 60 birds with a nasty that came with the new bird. I learned a lesson and even if I love you like a brother I will treat a bird from your place like a leper. Now I quarantine them on wire away from all others. I worm and start them on copper sulfate. I monitor respiratory health. I give a coccidiostat. After cleaning out and making sure they aren't bringing in anything I give them yogurt to re-populate the gut. I am still always scared to intigrate a new bird even from a "trusted" source. The one that killed all my birds was from an NPIP farm that made a mistake. What else do you do that I should be doing?
