Avian influenza 2020

Recommended Posts

I discovered yesterday that I’m literally 4 streets outside a regulation zone in which you are prohibited to move any poultry. 
I don’t regularly go that way, but it has been there since the beginning of December apparently. There was an outbreak found about 15 km away.

Thank you for your reply. I will just continue to keep them in. I am the only one doing so in my village in Northumberland. Peter

Well done Peter - it is annoying that we’re doing it properly when others aren’t. It’s the same as human COVID lockdown though in my opinion - just because other people may be breaking the rules, we should still stick to them to protect ourselves (or in terms of AI our flocks) and others.

For those thinking Avian Influenza is a thing of the winter: an outbreak has been confirmed in the Netherlands again at a non-commercial holder who is keeping all kinds of different birds. 
All 54 birds will be culled.

Commercial poultry farms still need to keep birds under cover.
