Hello everyone,

I promised in my last thread to let you know the result when the second test came back! Sisi her second test came back negative this time. Though I'm somewhat relieved that this test came back negative, I'm still quite unsure about it. This because of the symptoms she seems to have that can be quite compatible with pbfd (disformed feathers, weird colorings and such things). And I read that it's really hard to get a false positive.

Could this mean she is a carrier? And would it be a good idea to test her again in a few weeks/months? I ask this because the knowledge in the Netherlands on this isn't quite extensive.

Thank you so much in advance!

Greetings from me and Sisi :cag:

I would test again in a few months! Continue to use great caution and your usual decon techniques. Even if she is able to survive it, she would probably always be a carrier.

Will definitely do that then! And I will continue to use great caution, I stocked up a bit on F10 so this will be no problem!
Thank you so much for the advice!

I think it is wise to eliminate any possibilities if secondary diseases with PBFD, if that really is the case with Sisi. Remember that if she really is positive, then she will be in good care in your hands. Like other people said, she might be a carrier. You have all the support here!

Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm really so glad to have a place like AA :hug8:

Reading through this I really hope the first test was in fact a false positive.
I really hope so too! :unsure1:
