    The local news is talking about birds dying from West Nile, not confirmed yet but they are worried.

    I checked the list at the top but I didn't see anything about it. Does anyone have issues with this? Are chickens immune somehow? Is there anything you can do beyond ensuring your yard is free from standing water to keep the risk down?
