Started with 25 hens from a breeder in Norco, Caa( i will not slander them on a thread, you can PM me if you want thier name) and i lost 5 to Mereks. now it seems almost 3/4 of my flocks has avian Pox. if you think this is Pox and you have solutions for me, please post on thread so others can learn. some of these birds are no vaccinated for anything. mixed flock, mixed ages from 3 different breeders. they live in a 64 sq foot coop. deep litter method, eat phase 6 18% lay mash from reputable mill, free range on .6 acre property. also, egg production has plummetted to less than 30% of peak production. i live in So cal. so no snow, little rain but i do get below freezing a couple times per year. I think that will answer most of the questions to keep the thread simple, clean and open for solutions. Im not sure if i am doing something wrong Thank you BYC, you are always so helpful.
