Avian influenza H5N8 


Be prepared for new housing measures coming in on 14 December 2020 and consider how you can house your birds. You could make use of garden sheds, barns or even your garage if there is enough natural light and ventilation. If you cannot house, you must put measures in place to prevent contact with wild birds - for example by using netting.
