    Dottie,

    Could you bottom line this for me? The birds you recently
    purchased have PBFD. Is that what you're saying? Is that like
    being a "little bit pregnant?" Sorry if I don't understand
    this, but I'm trying. They have a little bit of the virus now,
    but will develop full blown PBFD?
