Young Birds

Three weeks in and I am sitting here looking at the weather wondering, shall I shan’t I? I like so many have put a lot of work into my youngsters, I weaned 85 in still have 81 and this is after having a touch of ‘YBS’. Hand on heart, I have never really suffered with this until last year when I had a few holding their corn, this was soon remedied with the assistance of my veterinary and in all fairness I probably created the situation my self as I had been treating them for the ‘head’ prior to training during a hot spell, so had I created a fungal problem? My droppings sample showed a high ‘cocci’ count, as we are probably aware this was caused by the primary problem.
