    Is anyone qualified to do pullorm testing on here that is located in Texas. I would like to get my birds tested but I am not sure how. Thanks for your help.

    Can a regular vet test chickens for pullorum? Also can they give you papers show they are clean? Thanks

    Unless you have money to burn stick with the gov. program. I had them do mine in NC. They do a blood test and also do salmonella and something else at the same time. I also had them virus tested. The two birds I had at the time cost a total of 5.00. Sweet. Jean
