Keeping your birds safe

Following confirmed cases of Avian Influenza in wild birds in three separate locations, an avian influenza prevention zone has been declared across the whole of England.

It is a legal requirement for ALL bird keepers to:
• Feed poultry in enclosed areas to discourage wild birds.
• Regularly clean and disinfect hard areas the birds can access.
• Minimise the number of visitors in contact with birds.
• Cleanse and disinfect footwear, equipment and vehicles which have access to bird areas.
• Ensure food, bedding and water supplies are secure from contamination.
• Implement effective vermin control.
