An Update on Avian Flu - Good News!

All poultry in England are to be allowed outside from Thursday 13 April 2017 following updated evidence on the risk posed by wild birds, the UK’s Chief Veterinary Officer has announced.

The requirement to keep poultry in Higher Risk Areas of England housed or completely enclosed in netting, introduced to minimise the risk of them catching avian flu from wild birds, will be lifted.

However, all keepers in England will continue to be required to comply with strict biosecurity measures. A ban on poultry gatherings also remains in force until further notice.

Poultry Keeping Made Easy at the Poultry Centre

At the Poultry Centre, we love keeping chickens and we want you to enjoy keeping chickens as much as we do. Our purpose is simple: to advise, support and supply you with everything you need to keep your poultry birds healthy, happy and productive. That is why all your hybrid birds come fully vaccinated, totally healthy and with a 28 day replacement guarantee.

The Poultry Centre is based at Bell Plantation Garden Centre, near Towcester, with easy access from the M1 and M40, and houses the largest number of poultry birds in the Midlands. Our 200 square metre display area is full with over 15 pens housing all kinds of poultry fowl, including hybrid chickens, rare breeds, ducks, geese and quails.

On site, you will also find a Vets practice if your birds are unwell, and a popular cafe, where regular seminars are held for members of the Poultry Rewards Card scheme.
