    I have an old picture from when we first got our BSL. At the time, we only had a d'Uccle, Dominique, the two Sex Links, Columbian Wyandotte, and a Holland.

    Sorry to say, but once you have it is almost impossible to get reed of it! No cure, the one that survived will stay as carrier that infect any new chickens, the virus can stay in the are fir years! You cant disinfect everything! What should you do:
    0. You should cull any infected bird.
    1. You should practice a restrict biosecurity policy.
    2. You should, if you can, practice the method if " all in all out" when you change your flock. Do you know the basics of an effective quarantine? ( the rule of "40:40"?)
    3. You should vaccinate your new chicks.
    4. There is breed that are naturally mor resistant to MD like the Fayoumi, you can choose them.
    See this link:

    5. You should raise,if you can one turkey with your chicken, the turkeys have a virus
    Related to the MDV that don't infect chickens but do make a cross vaccination to MDV in chickens( it is the virus that his used in the vaccination!)

    Good luck
