5.3 million Iowa chickens

will be destroyed because of the bird flu virus.  This will most likely affect the egg price before the corn price.

Re: Gov of Wisconsin has the National Guard on

now to dispose of the sick deals.

 

The federal govt is overwelmed trying to handle all the breaks evidently.

 

 

 

as wide spread as the disease has become it may effect the total usa poultry supply significantly.

Re: 5.3 million Iowa chickens

Help me understand something about this issue. Has it always been an issue? Is it a problem mainly with confinement operations or can your backyard chickens get it? Are all breeds of chickens equally susceptible? Is it true the outbreaks start from exposure to wild birds? I never saw this when I was a kid.

Re: 5.3 million Iowa chickens

I actually feel that some chickens are immune to it ( it'll take the consolidated usa poultry bus a while to figure that out 2 ).

 

yep, it'll come in off the wild foul.

 

someting else is spreading these breaks though. MO
