Dear Elena Hilario,

Have use Affi-gel blue to purify chicken IgY.  Albumin seems to bind the 
column up and it needs constant regenerating.  Try using protein A or protein 
G.  I had better yields with protein G.  What are you using as a preliminary 
purification scheme prior to the column and are you using serum or egg yolks?
