I was just wondering how many if any of the rest of you have any chickens or other poultry that you raise or even bird feeders and what your plans are if (when) the flue reaches the US or even you region, this on the assumption that it is still in its present form of being in the birds and barely transmitable to humans? We have a small flock of chickens that we raise for meat and eggs, we have already talked about it and figure that the risk would not be worth keeping them around if/when the flu gets to the US. We pretty much figure if it hits US soil we will kill all but the 2 birds that are kind of pet yard birds and rather than take any chances just burn them and if it reaches the mid west then the last 2 would go the same way. It may be over cautious or even paranoid but we decided its far better to be paranoid and loose a few dozen chickens than to take a chance on being dead. What are you alls thoughts on it?
