Pullorum and Avian Flu testing

Opportunities for Ohio Fanciers

 If you live in Ohio, and raise any kind of poultry  (chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, or pheasants),  there is a new opportunity for you to get your birds  tested for showing and / or selling. If you have your   birds blood tested for pullorum and swabbed for avian flu--- then the testing is free! This will save you the cost of paying for antigen and mileage for  the tester to do only the pullorum tests.   

This is a program utilizing the cooperation of fanciers, the Ohio Poultry Association, and the Ohio  

Department of Agriculture. The tester is a fellow breeder, showman, and fancier who is well acquainted  

with show poultry.  


The tester samples part of your flock – up to 30 birds of your choosing. You immediately receive a form VS 9-2  

certifying the pullorum test results. The AI swabs are sent to the lab and the results are mailed to you. There is  

no charge for these tests.  


You can stop at this point, meeting the annual pullorum   test requirement. However, if you wish to take your flock  to the next level, you can become NPIP certified (National  Poultry Improvement Plan). This just takes a few more   pieces of paperwork and there is a charge to register. You   would then receive an NPIP number and be listed in the  National NPIP book by state and breeds / varieties that  you raise, show, or sell.    

If you want to arrange testing of your birds, or just get more information, then call---
