    I have a friend who is keeping four dozen fertile eggs-rotated out- Just "IN Case or When" the Bird Flu does happen. In her plan-they will kill the adult chickens and start the incabutor asap. But will the eggs be affected? Should this work.. I (really)know nothing about the BF --I have read several articles but none that mention the eggs being affected. Any and all information is greatly apperciated...Dixie

    AI cannot be passed on through eggs. No offense but it sounds like some one has spent WAY to much time watching the news. The other thing is with AI ... out of the hundreds of strains there are very few that are actually problematic (HAPI).
