    LOTS of people go to these swaps and don't realize what they are bringing in.

    Goober, is there any way you can cull just one and send it for a necropsy to be sure that is what it is before you make any rash decisions?

    the one in Delmont Pa, at the tractor supply. I did email who ever always post the ads on craigslist. And I called tractor supply and told them also. I feel so bad though.. should I feel this bad? This man has over 700 hundred birds, ducks, geese, turkey chickens, turkens etc. And I know he does this for income. He is a nice man, but he needs to get them tested.

    where do I send one to have that done and how much do you think it is? The vet that came here today ..who was not a bird or livestock vet... said it was probably the coryza, but there is no smell of death or rotten eggs, there is a smell but not like that and no one has stopped drinking or eating. But I am being told to cull cull cull, that's why I just posted if anyone wanted to have my girls if they are dealing with the same thing and are ok with it, if its a closed farm.

    I know they do it here at PSU for (I think) $35. You can ship it on ice.
