    I wouldn't expect it to be that hard.

    Just learning to recognize what a "sick" bird looks like, hitting the veins correctly, testing procedure (1 drop blue stuff, 1 drop blood..., mix two together on white plastic grid). Then also use a swab in the throat of chickens or vent of waterfowl.

    (The swab is to check for AI and Newcastle, at least in our state.)
