Avian influenza (AI), or “bird flu,” is a virus that infects domestic poultry, such as chickens, turkeys, quail, and geese, and wild birds such as shorebirds and waterfowl.
Biosecurity For Birds is an outreach and education campaign to raise awareness among backyard poultry owners about the steps they can take to prevent AI and other infectious poultry diseases and what to do if they suspect a disease outbreak.
Here are three simple steps that will help keep your birds free of disease. We call this three-step process "backyard biosecurity." Backyard biosecurity means doing everything you can to protect your birds from disease.
Backyard Biosecurity. You are the best protection your birds have.
