If you keep poultry, including:

  • game birds
  • pets
  • other captive birds

you should review your biosecurity. This is particularly important if you are in, or close to, a higher risk area. We encourage all keepers to follow our Biosecurity and preventing disease in captive birds advice. It offers best practice, whether you have commercial flocks, smaller flocks, game birds, or pet birds.
