Avian Bird Flu:


Essential biosecurity and housing requirements for chicken and turkey keepers


Keep your chickens and turkeys housed. If you do not have a purpose-built building you could use a garden shed, garage or polytunnel provided there is adequate light and ventilation.


  • If there are any gaps in your poultry housing where wild birds could get in, block them or cover with netting.

  • If it is impossible for you to house your birds you must keep them separate from wild birds in a totally netted enclosure.

  • Feed and water must be indoors.

  • Do not keep your birds in the same buildings or enclosures as ducks or geese.

  • Make your premises unattractive to wild birds.

  • Use bird scarers, foils or streamers.

  • Store bedding inside to reduce the risk of contamination.

  • Non-compliance with these biosecurity measures may be an offence.
