I agree too. It hardly seems worth it, the distance you have to travel.
You know, I have a similarly bad disease in my chooks, returned about 4 times. Incurable, and kills 80-90% of them within 2 weeks, leaving the remainder highly contagious. The DPI tested them twice. I followed DPI recommendations, spelled the yard and coops for longer than the time they said the virus lives for. I managed to find lysol (which contains lye) and sprayed everything. But the next chooks I introduced got it too. Yes there is a vaccination but very hard to get here..needs transport in dry ice 1000km. Main trouble is the old timers who have bred chooks for over 60 years think the vaccine will spread disease to their chooks :roll: So I have stopped showing for several years and locked up a few for eggs only.
