Poultry should be kept indoors for a week, the agriculture ministry advised following bird flu reports at 3 Luxembourg farms
Poultry farmers should keep their birds indoors for a week after bird flu was reported in three small farm holdings in Luxembourg.
In an agriculture ministry press release issued on Friday, the government announced that the cases were reported in “amateur” poultry farms in Keispelt, Niederfeulen and Schrassig. The poultry have since been euthanised.
“In order to limit an extension of the disease to other farms, all transport of live poultry and any exposure of poultry are prohibited for one week,” the statement said.
Furthermore, the ministry recommended keeping poultry indoors and feeding and watering inside buildings.
It reassured consumers that this disease does not affect humans and any consumption of meat and eggs is safe for public health.
