    i read the article what a stink there will be if they compose the dead birds in one of those chicken houses with 1000's of birds. The bird flu is scary but i wonder just how it should be handled. Rannie

    That makes NO sense to me! If they can still carry it then why would it be used that closely? ---"Vaccines could be used in flocks surrounding the area of an outbreak, he said." Maybe I just don't get it....to me, surrounding the area would be close/near and if the birds can still carry the disease then that doesn't make any sense. I have a headache now. :baby04:

    If it is being carrried by wild birds, how is killing thousands or millions of farm animals going to stop its spread?

    I dont get it.

    ...its a problem because many of the outbreaks around the world are linked to movement of domestic poultry....both legal and illegal........
