California Flock Owners Invited to Take Part in Poultry Health Study

Californians who raise chickens and game fowl are invited to participate in a study to help the University of California more effectively deliver poultry health information and prevent the spread of diseases such as avian influenza. The survey takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete and includes questions about the flock; biosecurity practices; buying, selling and trading birds; and movement of birds for shows and fairs. The researchers encourage owners of small-scale poultry operations to contribute to the research project.
