i read recently, maybe in the ny times science section (tuesdays),

that bird flu may not be spread wild bird to domestic bird, but rather

domestic flock to domestic flock, including chick or chicken transfers.

i don't know how much weight this new view has

but it certainly indicates to me we are learning more things and new things about this disease month-by-month.

it's been speculatd that that's how it got to Nigeria... from turkish chicks. Yet, swams brought it to germany from russia.

This is a very complex virus, with much to learn. No smugness about 'what we know'.

Smuggling may well be a serious disease vector.
