    How are they testing? Heartland here in Missouri said they are checked ounce a year and are clean, but they just swab some, they don't draw blood and grow a culture.
    Kathy, thanks for your hard work and help.

    I don't know I could email and ask them, I just called to ask them since they do chick days around here. I also asked about Mereks, which they don't vaccinate for which is different.
