Do I need to be worried about Avian Flu?

Be aware of the potential risk of Avian Influenza during the winter months and keep an eye on the DEFRA website ( ).  Due to the recent outbreaks, poultry keepers should have good hygiene practices and remain vigilant for any signs of disease in their flock.

You can sign up for free online alerts on any outbreaks of bird flu, and you should register your birds (if you have more than 50 birds, then registration is compulsory).
