Avian Influenza (Bird Flu): Latest new
The Prevention Zone will be extended to 28 February 2017. This requires poultry to be “housed” away from wild birds.
Luckily our small run allows us to do this without locking Poppy and Sunflower in a shed. But this does mean at the moment, pupils are not allowed to go into the run or pet the chickens.
It also means we were unable to pick up the Ex-battery hens this weekend as planned, but we are hoping to collect some next month, once the Prevention Zone has ended.
