Necropsy Labs by State

 

If you have chickens, the unfortunate reality is that at some point, they will die. But what happens if one dies young, or several birds die in succession? Maybe you suspected it was an illness that ultimately brought your beloved birds demise. Wouldn't it be nice to know what caused your loss(es) to prevent them in the future? Consider sending the bird to your local laboratory for a necropsy. Many laboratories offer this service for free or a nominal fee.

Keep in mind that if you decide to have a bird sent to the lab, special preparation is necessary. Start by wrapping the bird in a bag and placing it in the refrigerator or a cooler of ice (do not freeze!). From there contact your local laboratory and decide if you can deliver or if you must mail. Ask them how they want the bird packaged for transport. 

Here you will find a comprehensive list of laboratories offering poultry necropsy. Please help us keep this list complete/up to date! If you know of a necropsy laboratory that is not listed below, comment below and we will add it! Thank you!
