I know for some of you putting a new bird or birds in to quarantine is second nature. You always do it. But there are those out there who don't know they should or have the attitude that "it can't happen to me." I received a panicked email from a lady yesterday about how her birds were sick could I help her? She left her phone number for me to call so I did. She told me her tale, kept saying her 90 birds are pets, that she was new to chickens, that she brought birds in from here there and every where. That some were sick, some were dying. It took some time to get her on track to get an idea of what was going on, when it began and what she was seeing. The high mortality rate bothered me and it was a fast killer. So I gave her the phone number to my guy who tests my birds for NPIP. I received an email from her this afternoon, she had talked to him. A vet came out, tested some of the birds and took four of the sickest with them for testing. TN is not an over reactive state when it comes to poultry disease so what they heard from her they must consider serious. Heck, I did. Because before I talked to her I considered going to have a look to see if I could help. After our conversation there was no way I would go near her place or birds.
