    I have heard that Laryngotracheitis was present at the Stockton show and an exhibitor has lost birds. I will not say who so do not ask but I heard from a very reliable source. Posting this so those that were there can take the necessary precautions.

    Thanks for the warning. I vaccinate, so I am not worried and all my birds are fine so far. It only takes a couple days for ILT to spread.

    ETA: I have recently been in touch with one of the major poultry suppliers in CA and they don't supply the LT-IVAX brand of ILT vaccine. They use another brand that can spread bird to bird.......

    A couple years ago an acquaintance through my business had her flock condemned and culled because of this disease. Nasty stuff.
