Update: Avian Influenza Update ‘Higher Risk Areas’
Further to the Avian Influenza update by DEFRA on March 20th 2017, there are now ‘Higher Risk Areas’ (HRAs) which have been defined to manage the disease. To find out if you are in a HRA, use the interactive map http://www.gisdiseasemap.defra.gov.uk/intmaps/avian/map.jsp and then follow the below advice: • if you’re not in a Higher Risk Area, then birds can be allowed outdoors into fenced areas provided the areas meet certain conditions • if you are in a Higher Risk Area then keepers must either keep their birds housed, in permanent or temporary sheds; or allow birds outdoors but only into a fenced run which is fully covered by netting

Do I need to feed my chicken grit?
Grit has a very important role to play in poultry nutrition as birds do not have any teeth and therefore require an alternative way of breaking up their feed. A chicken’s anatomy is such that after the food has been stored in the crop it then passes further down the digestive tract into the gizzard, which is also known as a mechanical stomach. Here the pieces of grit ingested by the birds act as tiny millstones, which in conjunction with the powerful muscles of the gizzard break down the feed into smaller particles, making digestion and nutrient adsorption more effective.
Update: Avian flu prevention zone extended until 28 February 2017
Further to the Avian Influenza Prevention Zone that has been in place since 6 December 2016 it has been announced that it will be extended until 28 February 2017 to help protect poultry and captive birds from avian flu. The zone requires keepers of poultry and other captive birds to continue to keep their birds indoors, or take appropriate practical steps to keep them separate from wild birds. It covers England and similar declarations have been made in Scotland and Wales. There is also a GB-wide ban on poultry shows and gatherings. If you keep poultry, you must also practice good biosecurity to minimise the risk of infection spreading via items such as feed, clothing or equipment.
