    They did not say in the article what virus it was. Do you know Chris?

  3. Laryn-something or nother. Its listed in the article.

    "The chickens are gone. They were killed, after some of the Sanderson Farms birds tested positive for poultry virus laryngotracheitis."

    That is so terrribly sad........ I would be devasted. We seem to live under the constant threat of Bird Flu here in the UK, the migratory birds are due back next month, and there has been an outbreak (again!) in the Far East .....so fingers crossed.
