Hello, I have a flock of Rhode Islands and a couple little banty hens. I had a hen die of Merecks disease a couple months back and so far everyone is okay with no issues. Lesson learned. I know merecks disease can kick around so this is my question. I wanted to do a flock of meat birds in the spring. Is this still an okay idea? How far away do they have to be? Any advice would be appreciated. Ps- what bird is the best with the least issues?
