Mareks disease

Hi I have a bird with suspected mareks disease. I heard you can get them tested for it. If so where can I do this and also how can I prevent any more getting it. It is a naked neck pullet that I think has it.

You need to contact your local dept of agriculture vet to get it tested,there is no cure and birds tested positive are carriers/shedders for life.
