Bird Flu Update 24/11/21

Defra have announced that all Poultry must be housed from 29th November😔

So this means that by law you can no longer free range your birds.

All runs must be covered with either tarps or plastic roofing, (netting, however thin, is not acceptable).

Ducks and Hens must be completely separated.

Try to use the same footwear when you are with your birds. Alternatively use a disinfection mat at the entrance of your coop and run with Virkon or a similar virucidal disinfectant.

Don’t let other people wander around your birds.

And don’t feed wild birds in your garden.

For regular updates please like our Facebook page and do message with any problems.

PLEASE NOTE – when Coops are advertised for sale they state the amount of hens that can sleep in the coop NOT the amount of hens that can be kept in the run! Minimum run area per hen is 1 Square Metre or 3 Square feet.

When you are adding to your flock remember that the new girls will be bullied by the existing flock so if you are adding to your flock you should add the same or more girls than you already have unless you have a completely separate run and coop or you are able to split the pen so that they can get to know each other gradually.

Please worm your new girls with Flubenvet in 6 weeks then 3 monthly, and powder your girls for mites every 4 weeks.

Our Hybrids and Bantams are all Fully Vaccinated.
