My grandfather has a farm and some neighbors next to him own a farm. The neighbors spread the chicken manure on their pastures for the past few years. Last year my grandfather came down with Histoplasmosis(sp).

The doctors think this is what caused it. Needless to say, he has had a lot of problems with it and the medication to treat this is hundreds of dollars per prescription.

What signs/symptoms do chickens exhibit if they are infected with this Avian Bird Flu? Just curious, haven't heard that mentioned anywhere.

H5N1 (Avian flu) is a devastating virus which primarily affects poultry. It's rare for humans to contract the virus. The only way to contract it is to have direct contact with an infected bird. It cannot be passed from human to human - only from infected bird to human.
