Poultry farmers have to keep chickens indoors because of avian flu...

It is not yet clear how long the poultry must remain indoors. The ministry is looking at the situation and is being advised by a group of experts. These experts say after research done on Wednesday that “the risk of an introduction to a poultry farm is now high.” Free-range and organic poultry farms are more susceptible to bird flu.

It concerns the variant H5N8, which was probably brought from Russia to the Netherlands by migratory birds. The flu can spread easily among wild waterfowl, which mainly live in groups at this time of the year. This variant of the flu may also have been found in a dead wigeon.

Agriculture minister Carola Schouten calls on people to report to the NVWA if they have found a dead bird. How this should be done is stated on the website of the Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority.
