Everybody needs to take a deep breath and not panic. The Bird Flu isn't even in the United States and I would dare say its just another media sensation like AIDS, Lyme, West Nile, SARS and so many other diseases that were going to kill everybody in the world.
Its real simple...
people just need to use common sense.
~Don't have alot of animals coming and going all the time.
~Provide plenty of food (and not just scratch feed or corn), FRESH water, GREENS, dry bedding, shelter and SUNSHINE.
~Don't overcrowd.
~Don't show your birds at poultry shows.
~Don't buy from auctions, swap meets or from people who don't take good care of their animals.
~Isolate newcomers for 30 days.
Do this and you won't have to worry about any type of diseases.
If you don't have the time and money to provide this type of care, get rid of your animals.
