Three broiler companies in Colombia with several broiler flocks and one breeder flock presenting overt respiratory signs, kidneys’ nephritis lesions, late mortality, decreased egg production and decreased fertile egg quality were investigated for IBV infection. Results from Elisa serology and a molecular diagnostic survey confirmed that flocks had been infected by either one or concomitantly by more than one IBV variant strains (Q1 [China], YEM/L 2865-2005 [Yemen] and K46/10 [South Korea]).
