    TB, is making its rounds this year [​IMG] and has been found above Charlotte nc in a large no. of fowl. [​IMG] The man who does my NPIP checks told me today that he was on his way to Quaranten the birds and they would all have to be culled. I feel sorry for whoever they belong to. He said there were over a 1000 birds so I suspect a large corp. or something. It is contagious. It is not treatable. CHICKENS DO NOT GET COLDS!!!!!! Please if you see a sickly chicken put it in Quar. I can't spell this morning. My hens are healthy and hope all of you are the same. Good luck through this cold winter. [​IMG] Gloria Jean

    Scary! I would be devastated if I had to cull my flock. Thanks for the timely reminder.

    Things to remember when you go to someone else's house and they have chickens.

    Take extra shoe's and change them before you get out of your car. When you get back in your car sit with your feet out of the car and take off the shoes and place in a plastic bag. When you get home wash those shoes and the cloths you had on. I know most of you don't want to look stupid and wear cover alls over your cloths when you go to your friends or anyone that has chickens but it's so easy to pass things along. Never do I go to anyone's house that has chickens without changing my shoes and they don't even have to know it. [​IMG]

    If I can I go to a car wash and wash my car before I go home. I don't want anything on my tires or car that can be passed to my chickens. You never know who was at that house before you. I have to do other things when I go to homes with chickens but these things are just some things you can do to stop spreading things around. [​IMG]
