Re: Bird flu
I don't have any concerns at the moment, no reported cases in this country, so just a case of keep flying sensibly and hope it stays that way. Atb. John

Re: Bird flu
No problem flying now. However you must keep away from waterfowl.

Re: Bird flu
Nightmare for me. I happen to keep waterfowl as a hobby (Eider species and other artic marine species etc) - My areas are netted over anyway on a half acre sight.

Re: Bird flu
This is taken from Hy Fly hatcheries web page they are based on the Fylde coast Lancashire an area called Wyre

Thursday, 02 February 2017


After the announcement 22/01/2017 APHA officials and staff have been on site to conduct the Culling of appox 17,000 Mallard 23,000 Partridges and 23,000 Pheasants which includes a lot of pure Japanese Green Pheasants that unfortunately can never be replaced and are of extremely high value.
At the moment Hy-Fly have 13,000 laying pheasants on Satellite Farms which are still being tested, but even if all results are negative they may decide to Cull using possible Dangerous Contact as a precautionary reason.
We have been in discussions with some of the top officials at APHA and are hopeful the hatchery will be allowed to operate under licence. We are already sourcing caught up Wild Mallard for breeding, but unfortunately we will not be producing any Partridge Chicks this season. We will keep you up dated on this web site as to what capacity we will be operating at. May we take this opportunity to thank everybody for their sympathy and kind wishes. A special thanks to all our staff at this difficult time.
