Tiering information from Cornwall Council (3 December 2020)

An Avian Influenza Prevention Zone has been declared across the whole of England effective from 5pm on 11 November 2020. All poultry keepers in England (whether they have commercial flocks or just a few birds in a backyard flock) are required by law to take a range of biosecurity precautions. If you keep poultry (including gamebirds or pet birds) or other captive birds, you must act now to reduce the risk of disease in your flock by following the relevant biosecurity measures required within the AIPZ.  Your stock needs to be feed and watered under cover to prevent contamination from wild birds. Avian influenza is unconnected with coronavirus (COVID-19). Owners of pet birds in their back garden are required by law to take a range of biosecurity precautions including from the 14 December 2020 keeping their birds indoors except in very specific circumstances. Please see this guidance. (Updated 6 January 2021).
