  • a Two-week-old specific-pathogen-free chickens were infected intranasally and orally with 50 μl of virus (a total of 105 PFU). Three chickens were sacrificed on day 1 p.i., and viral titers were determined in embryonated chicken eggs. When virus was not recovered from all three chickens, individual titers were recorded. By day 2, the remaining chickens had died.
