    Hello everyone, I live in Georgia and I own a five acre lake behind my house that is habituated by Canadian geese. Soon my Peking ducks will be going to the lake every morning to spend the day there and then come back at night to sleep in their coop next to my chickens. I wanted to know if anyone have info on the Avian flu? is there a way to protect the ducks with say flu shot? I am concern about the ducks getting it and it spreading through the ducks and chickens.

    I do not have any info on it and was hoping anyone on this website and help me with my concerns

    Thank you
