Georgia Poultry Lab

What happens if one of my chickens passes away suddenly?

This is a question I get asked often at CityChick. Unfortunately, its something that every chicken owner will have to deal with at some point. The good news is that there is a FREE resource for backyard chicken owners. The Georgia Poultry Lab is a terrific tool that not many people are aware of. 

What is the Georgia poultry Lab?

The Georgia Poultry Lab provides a range of services from disease monitoring and testing to chick quality assurance to hatchery inspections. For backyard chicken farmers, the Georgia Poultry Lab provides a free necropsy service. If you have a chicken that passed away suddenly, and you are concerned about a potential disease outbreak, you can submit your bird for a detailed, free necropsy report.
