Avian flu



New housing measures to protect poultry and captive birds from avian influenza across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are now in force. They apply whether people keep just a few birds or thousands.

The Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) has announced that from 29 November 2021, keepers are legally required to keep birds indoors or take appropriate steps to keep them separate from wild birds and follow strict biosecurity measures in order to limit the spread of Avian Influenza.
