How can I reduce the risk that Avian Influenza poses to my flock?

Practice strict bio-security to avoid bringing the virus onto your property. These measures include disinfectant footbaths outside the run (of a DEFRA approved disinfectant such as Nettex Poultry Virocur Disinfectant), discouraging wild birds from your garden and chicken run (i.e. covering). If you keep waterfowl as well as chickens, then they must be housed apart as waterfowl are the main virus carriers. Also be careful to keep separate footwear for use outside your property.
