Bird Flu Restrictions being lifted
« on: April 11, 2023, 05:18:29 pm »
Being lifted from 18th April. So housing not mandatory unless you are still in a protection or surveillance zone (there are still a few about). Biosecurity measures still necessary though, eg foot dips, don't allow wild birds access to food, water etc.

It turns out that once again the rules/laws are different in our four nations!

I thought the exclusion zone in our county meant my hens had to be under cover - I asked when this was likely to be lifted and was told we don't have a housed law as you have in England so all I needed to do was exercise bio security - which I do anyway.  So my four are getting freedom this weekend

Yep!

I'm wondering if with the changes in Government this will be the case next year?  The large cage I bought for the flockdown that didn't happen has now been appropriated for my winter brassicas, so I'm hoping Scotland will continue to see sense.
