Avian Influenza Update - Backyard Bird Owners

Friday, 17 December, 2021

Calling all Backyard poultry and captive bird clients: The Avian Influenza situation across the UK is critical, and our area unfortunately hasn’t escaped.

Some cases have been found on premises where birds were not housed. To help stop the spread of this devastating disease, all poultry and captive birds should be housed. It is a legal requirement to follow the housing order rules, and maintain a high level of bio security, no matter how many birds you keep.

We appreciate that this can be easier said than done, so if you’re struggling with practical ways to keep your birds safe inside, please get in touch.
