    What is the process for that? We have about 200 birds and were wondering how difficult it would be to have all of them tested?

    Go online to the National Poultry Association. They have links to the different States testing agencies. I have a flock of 11 and they only needed to test 5. They do a throat culture that gets sent in to a lab and they also take blood in which the results show in about 3 minutes. In Ohio, we don't pay for the testing, only $35. for the certification. Good luck all!
