    I know that the 3 roos I have left are likely positive for marek. Is this passed through to the fertile eggs?
    Thanks, I know this is probably odd, but trying to decide if they should be put down, able to be of some use. I've already loss the rest of those I ordered from an auction here.

    He will not pass it on with fertilization. It's too late to cull to prevent it. Your property has already been exposed.

    Make sure chicks/egg hatchers are vaccinated and quarantined.
