Even though we are currently out of flockdown, it is never a bad idea to make sure you are preventing the chance of your birdies picking up avian flu.
Here are some top tips on how to reduce the risk of infection:
- Ensure you can completely secure your coop or aviary, by having windows that can close, doors that will fully shut and not gaps in your fencing big enough for a wild bird to fit through.
- The virus can be carried into your coop or aviary on your clothes or shoes, so it is important to know where you are stepping, or you can have a specific pair of shoes that you use to enter the enclosure.
- Biosecurity always helps. Investing in easichick dust free bedding that is biosecure and organically treated to be free from bacteria, moulds and spores will help to prevent any issues of avian flu being spread further.
- Lastly, keep up to date with the avian flu news. Sites such as GOV.UK are perfect to keep you in the loop of any potential flockdowns in the future.
