Thought it worth sticking this article on for those anywhere near, or thinking of buying/moving poultry. Hope no body is affected by this ......

cheers

not an easy one to answer , so I put the above link on . I think they can explain far better than I.  In people some of the signs are similar to normal flu , but once again go by what the experts say . Hope the link helps a bit ....but it isn't all that easy by what I have read, not till it is too late anyway....

as its avaian flu its the poor birds that catch it most easily ..............the chances of humans who practise good health and hygiene in their land is  very small.......................even so do take severe precautions if you live local to an outbreak.....they say cleanliness is nearest to godliness  ..............................but it will keep you living longer too
retired to deep in rural france.keep 2 shih tzu dogs ( 1 boy 1 girl),1 cat(girl),lots of pure breed chickens(both sexes)....golden pheasants(both sexes) and the best wife a man could have
