I need to KNOW it's over rated.
I've heard of them killing jack russels before. A terrier is slightly sadder.

We had the inspecters in again today. Full boiler suits with hoods and a mask. Mum has never grasped the "put up with people if they're important" thing so she was a bit rude and they're coming back Thursday to check shes put some nets up. rolleyes.gif

anyone want to join me in killing all birds? Really it can't be that hard and if theyre disease is going to kill us anyway we might as well get some kind of twisted satisfaction out of it

any1 seen New Scientist this week? They reckon that the government testing is flawed, because it only showed a small amount of flu of any kind, (<1%) but bird experts reckon the figure should be around 10%

QUOTE(New Scientist @ 15 Apr 2006)
Of the 3323 faecal samples from wild birds taken for DEFRA by the conservation group the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) in December, only two were shown to contain low-pathogenicity bird flu - 0.06%. In a parallel study for DEFRA conducted by huntersm bird flu was found in only three of 423 freshly shot ducks, or 0.7%........"There's something wrong with those numbers," says Bjorn Olsen of the University of Kalmar in Sweden, who tests up to 10,000 wild birds per year in Europe's biggest monitoring for avian flu. Usually, he says, around 10% of dabbling ducks and 1% of geese should be carrying low-pathogenicity bird flu in Europe in December


So, basically, there might be more bird flu out there, and DEFRA have missed it unsure.gif

Yeah, I read that.
On a side note, it came yesterday, doesn't it usually come out Thursdays? It's a day early.
They printed Tuesday, had it been announced that they had got the speciies of swan wrong? It's the type that doesn't live in Scotland so it might just have been washed up. *still hoping*
I'm not very sure about that article anyway. They've not mentioned that fact that birdflu isn't all that infectous anyway and locking up the birds in small spaces will make them stressed and more likely to catch anything. At the moment we aren't allowed to move the outside cages, so they'll but up to their necks in muck. I think we're going to let them get really dirty, then call in animal health and try to get an exemption.

*pretends not to have noticed Daniel's comment*

Oh, and the inspectors are getting everything muddled up. The vet says there is records of us having been visited 3 times but they've only been twice. The nuisences, mum seems to be getting pretty stressed out. She had to put up nets yesterday, I was away in London but my brother and gran helped and it took 2 and a half hours. So she didn't notice a sick lamb, it died but would have been very easy to treat.

The poultry restrictions still apply. Well, theoreticaly anyway. We had another visit from the inspector today. The things we were meant to have done went all right and he just said it was fine.
Not our fault the chickens launched an escape attempt yesterday. Was bad enough catching them.
We think they may have watched Chicken Run for the ideas.
