Greetings, I have been wondering how you manage your flocks, open or closed? This is for opinions and no slamming another for their choices. I do not believe there is a correct answer or only one way to behave. There are pro's and con's of everything in life- share what you think. Of course most of you already have heard about my grumbling about mycoplasmas and those types of conditions! ~I would like to hear why you chose to open or close your flock? ~Are you concerned with the health and quality when accepting or selling a bird? ~Are you NPIP tested (very important)? ~Would you have your birds tested if more then one died in the same month? Why do you have these opinions that you live by?
