    Wow, that is really scary. I wonder who is supplying our birds for the weekend test...
    Off to set up my wingers right now as a matter of fact, before any more apple samples roll in! Anne

    I think that the events this weekend that are probably scrambling for birds (though the bird supplier might already be finding more birds) would be Puget Sound Lab Retriever club (hunt test) and Idaho Retriever Club (field trial) and Sagehens Retriever Club (field trial).

    Our club (PSLRA) apparently had the same supplier but have it handled now. I had a call this afternoon. Don't know whether they were able to get enough ducks for live flyers though......... Anne

    I am pretty sure if you walked up to an official in the Mississippi Department of Wildlife or the Department of Agriculture and said "Ducks with antigen to Avian flu (I think H-5?)" They would look at you with a really blank stare and say something like "No thanks, I already ate lunch."

    I wonder if it was the high path H5-N1 variety (which is the one that "they" are really afraid of). Birds can test positive for the H5-N1 Low path and there is not much concern. If all those birds were killed for the low path version, I'd say someone jumped the "gun" so to speak. As far as I know, only the low path version has been found here in the U.S.

    Congrats on your pass though!

    Too bad about the no pass on Saturday. Around here, it's about 50-50 as to weather they will fail for a "break" before "dog" being said. But I have seen some judges get really picky about what they allow and do not allow.
