Uncommon Illnesses Usually Associated With:

Unhealthy parent stock Extreme fluctuations in temperature. Incubation temperature being too high.  

I cull for these reasons:

  • MG, MS

    Respiratory nfection 

  • Life long carriers, bad development and early death. Under Developed eye sockets 

    Can keep alive but will have life long challenges and struggles may starve and will be bullied by stronger birds. 

  • Brain outside skull

    100% fatality rate, your incubation temperature is inconsistent and HIGH.

  • Dislocated hips

    Surgery not an option, no fix available 

  • Deformed wings/legs

    Can keep alive but quality of life will be poor with the weakness and will get bullied by other chicks. 

  • Mareks Disease 

    A HIGHLY contagious neoplastic virus. Affecting chicks and chickens. Causes paralysis, blindness, Sudden death and slow deterioration. Chicks born to parent stock with the disease are sickly, slow, weak and usually die within three days of hatch due to being born with a compromised immune system. All birds should be vaccinated property with FOUR days of hatch quarantine for mareks to expendentially decrease the chance of contraction.
