I think many people are exaggerating about the whole thing. My grandma, today, for example. She had lunch with us, my mom told her there was some chicken left from yesterday and she said: "DON'T BUY CHICKEN!!!!!!" :roll:

When we were in Asia, my mom didn't really want us to eat chickens because she was paranoid of that thing. Then when we came back to the States, she wouldn't let us eat chickens for a while, too. I told her to not worry about about it since most chickens in the States aren't farm-raised; they're antibiotics-raised :lol: . She told me I was talking nonsense; however, she started to buy chickens again. I guess she'd rather eat an antibiotics-raised chicken than a run-around-in-a-farm-without-antibiotics-in-body chicken. :lol: :lol:

Hi Ahmads I'm not sure about that either. I don't even think the researchers are; thats why that are having difficulty with vaccines. The strain can change dramatically so what they have today won't be any good tomorro. :(

A chook is how an Aussie refers to a hen. This is very common expression.
