I'm about 90 percent positive that one of my chicks has mareks disease. My other chicks seem fine but I know looks can be deceiving. Is there any way to make sure my other chicks don't get sick? They range in age from 6-8 weeks. Is there a way to disinfect the coop?

If u got them from tsc then they should be vaccinated for mareks. U 100% sure it is mareks? Isolate the one that is sick from the rest of the flock. Since they were all exposed only time anctell wat will happen to them.

I'm sorry for your loss. I had my bf cull mine today because I felt so bad for it and I didn't want the others to be at risk. I hate seeing animals suffer. My chickens are my pets not livestock
