How important do you think NPIP is when you're buying eggs?
if you have a npip certified flock, its mandatory, If you are not certified, and want to buy from non-certified, there is very little pullorum and typhoid around. Your chances of getting mycoplasm is a bigger threat, and its not necessarily covered under npip certification.
I'm not familiar with mycoplasm. How is it passed around? What kind of questions do I need to be asking to avoid it?
where did your birds come from? is a good start.
i didn't seek out a npip breeder when i started my flock i looked into good standards of breed and a breeder in good standing in this community (byc) .
i do plan to go npip later this year when this years' hatches are adults.
