With recent outbreaks of Avian Influenza, keeping poultry flocks healthy has become an important topic for anyone who has chickens, turkeys, ducks or other fowl. Implementing biosecurity plans and practices to reduce the chances that that a flock will come into contact with disease-causing agents is the easiest way to help prevent on-farm illness. Understanding how poultry get sick and how to prevent it is critical to developing an effective biosecurity plan. This session will outline general poultry health as well as some easy steps that poultry producers or even backyard chicken owners can take to ensure that their flocks stay healthy and happy. In addition, this session will provide ideas on who to contact, and how in order to get diagnostic help if a flock is sick.
