A large commercial turkey farm about 6 - 7 miles away from my birds has contracted the H5N2 virus. 750 turkeys died on Sunday, and thousands more the past couple days. Thousands of waterfowl are migrating through our area, and it's suspected that they are spreading the virus through their droppings. I suspect that the State veterinarian will be dropping by to confiscate/kill my prize bantams. Seems that the waterfowl will be left alone, while my completely healthy birds will likely be killed.
