Update: Avian Influenza Update ‘Higher Risk Areas’
Further to the Avian Influenza update by DEFRA on March 20th 2017, there are now ‘Higher Risk Areas’ (HRAs) which have been defined to manage the disease. To find out if you are in a HRA, use the interactive map http://www.gisdiseasemap.defra.gov.uk/intmaps/avian/map.jsp and then follow the below advice: • if you’re not in a Higher Risk Area, then birds can be allowed outdoors into fenced areas provided the areas meet certain conditions • if you are in a Higher Risk Area then keepers must either keep their birds housed, in permanent or temporary sheds; or allow birds outdoors but only into a fenced run which is fully covered by netting More ...

Update: Avian flu prevention zone extended until 28 February 2017

Further to the Avian Influenza Prevention Zone that has been in place since 6 December 2016 it has been announced that it will be extended until 28 February 2017 to help protect poultry and captive birds from avian flu.


The zone requires keepers of poultry and other captive birds to continue to keep their birds indoors, or take appropriate practical steps to keep them separate from wild birds.


It covers England and similar declarations have been made in Scotland and Wales. There is also a GB-wide ban on poultry shows and gatherings.


If you keep poultry, you must also practice good biosecurity to minimise the risk of infection spreading via items such as feed, clothing or equipment.

New measures to protect poultry against Avian Flu

DEFRA News: 6th December 2016

New measures to protect poultry against Avian Flu


Precautionary measures have been announced by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) which applies to all bird keepers, from poultry farmers to families with a few chickens. This is as a result of a H5N8 bird flu strain which has been found in poultry and wild birds in France, Sweden and other nations.


Keepers of chickens, turkeys and ducks are being required to keep them indoors for 30 days or take steps to separate them from wild birds.


Poultry keepers are advised to be vigilant for any signs of disease in their birds and any wild birds, and seek prompt advice from their vet if they have any concerns. Keepers can help prevent avian flu by following the advice from DEFRA and maintaining good healthcare and management of their flock - for more information and to keep up to date More ...
