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.
