    I had someone email me about it and I couldn't find the info, well here it is.

    It is free of charge. I know she does North Florida (Gainesville, Jacksonville, etc), if you email her she'll probably tell you if it is her or someone else for your area.

    Because of Purple Chicken's post about MG, I asked her about their testing and this is the response:

    Hi Christy.

    We do test for MG in sick bird investigations. But it’s not the normal part of our testing program, only if you have sick/dying birds. MS is also a respiratory disease birds get, somewhat similar but treatable with antibiotics. I would keep constant surveillance on your flock and just watch for any possible sicknesses. This time of yr. is also hard because of the weather hot, rainy, humid etc.

    We’ll test the new birds you have when they’re breeding age or during your yrly. NPIP test.


    Call if you need for further questions or concerns.386.623.0531

    Thanks,
    Sherie Vickers
