Avian flu latest
From 25 May 2018 the Avian Influenza Prevention Zone no longer applies in England. This means if you keep poultry or birds, you are no longer required to follow detailed requirements on strict biosecurity. However, keepers are still being encouraged to follow the biosecurity advice - it represents good practice - whether you have commercial flocks or just a few birds in a backyard flock.
The latest information on Avian influenza can be found on the GOV.uk website.
