Looks like there's an out break of bird flu in chickens and wild game. I'll post info as I get it. For now be very careful of your home flock and their interaction with any wild birds.

Yeah, this looks scary. Last outbreak resulted in many millions of birds being culled....

"With the recent detections of the Eurasian H5 strain of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in wild birds and domestic poultry in the United States, bird owners should review their biosecurity practices and stay vigilant to protect poultry and pet birds from this disease. APHIS is working closely with State partners on surveillance, reporting, and control efforts."

7 detections so far
