    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!
