DEFRA warns: 'Keep poultry inside' amid bird flu risk, keepers told 08/12/2016

The BBC reported yesterday:

Poultry keepers have been told to keep their birds inside to protect them from a highly-infectious strain of avian flu in Europe.

Chicken, turkey and duck owners must keep them indoors for 30 days or take steps to separate them from wild birds.

The H5N8 bird flu strain has been found in poultry and wild birds in 14 countries including Germany and France.

Farmers are being asked to look for signs of infection and to take robust disinfectant measures.

The precautionary measures announced by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) apply to farmers and anyone in England who keeps any birds, even those with a few chickens in their back garden.
