Hi everybody, I was just sent an e-mail that there are confirmed cases of Avian Influenza in Washington State. Nothing in domestic birds, yet, but I wanted to share the website so you can be aware of the symptoms. http://healthybirds.aphis.usda.gov/ It has some really good information about how to keep our chickens safe from foreign diseases. Not trying to alarm anybody, but I feel that knowing what to look for is better than being surprised and losing the entire flock. Merry Christmas, everybody!
