    I'm so sorry to hear this. What happened? How did the state become involved? Can you describe your symptoms so we can learn?

    Why wont the state let you treat them? Again, I am so sorry. My heart goes out to you. You and your feathered family will be in our prayers.

    Your State is probably very hard on disease because I would assume it is a big producer of meat type birds and a disease like this can wipe out their business.

    My advice to you is to follow the State Law about quarantine and culling. Start over and next time, vaccinate your birds with LT-Ivax. Only buy chicks and be very careful whom you visit and who visits you.

    ILT has been making the rounds in the US this year. There was an outbreak that involved 4-5 counties here in Washington this year that I know of.
