Layers/ Breeders 

  • Work with your processor to see if there is fowl processing capacity at a different plant;
  • Work with your feed mill to ensure adequate feed supply;
  • If other processing obtions are not available, consider alternative options such whole flock depopulation and disposal; and
  • (Egg layers) talk with your board if your downtime between flocks is less than 7 days.

Consider alternative markets or methods of depopulation such as whole barn gassing or partial barn gassing.
