Some of you may know that I recently had to cull my entire adult flock (10 hens, 2 roos). We raised chicks last year, and just as they begun to lay, some Pit Bulls came onto our property and killed all but 2. We bought 10 more adults to replace them, and one of the roos I got ended up testing positive for MG. That's my luck for ya. Anyhow, we also have 2 Silkies and a banty hen who are kept seperate from the standards but are pretty close by. The poultry guy said that they'd more than likely would have MG as well since they were so close and it is so highly contageous. I had them tested on Thurs, and I got the results back today... Negative! Praise the lord! I LOVE my Silkie roo and my daughter is super attached to her little banty hen. I am devestated about having to lose my flock, but so thankful that everyone didn't catch it. I have another shipment of baby chicks from Ideal coming on the 28th. I already have 24 two week old pigs, I mean, chicks. I am about to have 25 more!!
