Poultry Farms and Avian Influenza
1 February 2018
In case you had not yet been alerted, the government are now advising poultry farmers to follow the latest government advice in light of a recent outbreak of avian flu across Europe.
Keepers of poultry and other captive birds in Britain are now legally required to keep their birds indoors, or take appropriate steps to keep them separate from wild birds.
In the light of this, and unless absolutely necessary, please do not directly visit poultry farms until the prevention zone has been lifted. If it is essential for you to visit and are invited in by the farmer, please ensure you follow their strict advice in relation to bio security.
So our advice is to avoid any lanes that go near a poultry farm. Please spread the word. Thanks.
