    guess everyone heard about our bird flu out break that made the news,

    i guess its comin to every where


    20,000 chickens uthinized, and backyard flocks being monitored by the usda for 2.5 mile radious from the farm.

    just another reason why we should raise our own chickens

    anyone who saw or read the story that has a knowledge please explain this strand of avian flu,

    Well there's the really nasty strain (don't remember what it's called... H5N1?) that's been running amok in Asia. Is that what's hit your area? I sure hope not. Then there's the not so bad but still concerning strains.
