    If it was me I think I would just keep them seperate and if you notice anything then I would treat. I would use an antiotic in the water. Hope its just with the one bird. Good luck!

    Bird is recovered but we are going to cull her anyway. susepecting aspergillus or respiratory disease. All other birds are healthy and we are going to research vaccinating them and maintain flock separation for a while.

    Frustrated because we suspect whatever it is possibly came from another local farm. They sell local non-gmo organic feed and we found out they are housing many sick birds rather than culling them and we only know this because we have workers that also work for them. We won't be buying from them anymore. Thanks for all the insights on this thread and others.
