HAPPINGS AROUND LUCKY 17

THIS WEEKEND WE ARE PULLING FLIGHTS ON ALL RACE BIRDS AND INSPECTING EACH BIRD . RIGHT NOW WE HAVE 3 BIRDS WITH HURT LEGS ( FROM ROUTING) AND ARE IN THE HOLDING PENS.    WE HAVE THE BIRDS ON AMOXICELLIN AS WE ARE EXPERIENCING SOME LOSSES I THINK FROM ECOLI.  THE SYMTOMS ARE THE SAME AS ALWAYS, THE BIRD LOOKS LISTLESS ONE DAY AND DEAD THE NEXT.   ALL BIRDS HAVE BEEN VACCINATED ON ARRIVAL WITH THE ROTO VACCINE FOR PMV. 

WE GIVE THE BIRDS A BATH ABOUT 2 X EACH WEEK WHICH THEY SEEM TO ENJOY.   WE HAVE ALSO BEEN GIVING THEM OPEN LOFT FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS,  WE WILL NOW SHUT THEM DOWN FOR A WHILE JUST LETTING THEM EXERCISE ONCE DAILY UNTIL THE LAST FLIGHT IS MOSTLY GROWN IN. 

IT IS VERY HOT HERE NOW, AROUNG 98 TO 100 DEGREES EACH DAY WITH NO RAIN IN THE NEAR FORCAST.

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GOOD 4TH OF JULY, KEEP SAFE
