Very good question.

Although I have no experience with meraks disease, I have contacted a professor at kentucky's university and received a response.

She sent me this link and answered my questions concerning merak's disease.

I would recommend you check on this web site first. If you don't find your answer there - - then contact a professor in the poultry area at the univeristy.

No it wont kill it. I use oxine but the vet said its in the ground where the birds were. I had to move my pens. Also I have had birds get it after they get the vaccination. I started giving my own vacc. last March and have been lucky because nothing here has been hit with it since last year. Its nasty!
