Hope it is not avian flu

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

It was two degrees outside this afternoon when I happened to look out back and saw something large and black lying on top of the chicken coop that had not been there several hours earlier.  At first I thought it was an animal.  On closer inspection however, the object turned out to be a dead crow. 

 

How and why it ended up on top of our coop I have no idea.  There were some crows around last summer, but we never saw them in close proximity to the coop.  I would like to get the bird autopsied. Unfortunately I have no idea who to contact.  (I don't think we have an Agricultural agent in this county.)

 

Any suggestions?

 

Any idea what might have killed the crow - ingesting road salt?  I'm quite certain it was not shot.

 

When I get out there tomorrow, I'll be using rubber gloves and double bagging it to be on the safe side.

 

Thanks for your help

Not sure if this article will help.
