Q: What is the Biosecurity for Birds campaign and how can I find more information about it?


Biosecurity for Birds is a public awareness campaign started by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service in 2004. It was designed to educate the growing population of backyard poultry owners on how to keep their flocks healthy. The campaign is focused on public education and reducing the risk of contagious poultry diseases in backyard poultry.

This is great for those who keep pet or show chickens, and who want to know how to best keep them safe.
