If you deal directly with poultry or pet birds, protecting your birds against disease should be a priority. Developing and implementing an effective biosecurity plan is essential toward that goal. Diseases such as highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) and Exotic Newcastle Disease (END) can strike poultry and pet birds quickly and cause significant mortality and economic loss. Consequently, all bird owners need to be vigilant. Become familiar with signs of disease in birds. Report sick birds to your veterinarian or to the Sick Bird Hotline 866-922-2473. Remember, biosecurity measures must be practiced diligently, every day, without fail or exception to be effective.
