Bird Flu

Due to bird flu, everyone who has outdoor birds e.g. hens, ducks and geese need to keep them in or put them in their run as long as it has a cover for a month/21 days, but to make sure I would keep them in for 28 days. The main way they could get the flue is by poo/faeces but there are other ways as well.

Hopefully if you have any birds they are going to be ok (they should ok be if you follow the instructions but if they do I hope they get better)

More information from the Government is on their website.

Chicken’s in the paper

Recently dad sent me a email about chickens I thought it was very interesting. It was released quite a while ago although we found it recently. Click here for the link.

Here is the first paragraph:

Chickens are native to the tropical jungles of Southeast Asia, but over the last approximately 8,000 years, chickens have been domesticated and spread around the globe to become one of the most valued domesticated animals. These fairly shy forest birds lack the ability for long-distance flying and are not migratory. As such, their spread around the world is not just a tale of domestication, but one that is intimately linked to the movements of people around the world.

That is amazing!!!!!!
