    I'm not sure if this is the place for this but my state, Alabama, just banned selling birds at flea markets because they found 3 confirmed case of avian flu :( not sure when the ban will be lifted, but it makes me sad! Checking out the livestock at the flea market has been part my life for along long time. I do understand the importance of not spreading this flu though!

    They may do that before it's over. I'll keep a check on it.

    It's actually a stop-movement order issued by the Alabama dept of agriculture.
