    My banty cochin pullet that I bought at a swap has a respiratory problem that I believe to be IBV. If you have a closed flock or also have a carrying flock, PLEASE take her. She's silver pencilled (not that common of a coloration) and she's sooo sweet. I'd hate for her to go. She's getting culled tomorrow evening if no one takes her.

    I'm sorry. I really like that coloring! Unfortunately, this is a common problem with birds obtained at swaps or off Craig's list. I would go ahead and cull. Without a lab verified diagnosis, it's unlikely anyone will want to take a chance.

    That's what I figured but I thought it wouldn't hurt to put it out there just in case.
