AVIAN FLU

NOTICE TO ALL POULTRY KEEPERS

DEFRA have issued an instruction that all poultry (in whatever size flock) should be kept indoors if possible or at least out of contact with wild birds from December 7th 2016 to January 6th 2017.

This is because of a fear of a new strain of avian flu, being spread from continental Europe through migrating birds.

Poultry keepers are advised to keep a close watch on their flocks.
