I've heard of them killing jack russels before. A terrier is slightly sadder.

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

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.

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
i think that you need to get your head sorted, these aren't just birds! these in my case are my pets, would you like some1 to tell you that they wanted to walk into your house and kill your dog, your cats? i think that maybe you should read this thread again because there are many polurty keepers on here. i think that is just sick, and i'm very angry , i know your entilted to your opinion but tha is sick!

The bird flu restrictions imposed after the discovery of a dead whooper swan in the Fife village of Cellardyke have been lifted.

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.
