Bird flu impact on auction
It is a great pity that Salisbury Market has not run its monthly rare breed auction for a year now and there are no plans to run it this year. The problem is that there is still a risk of a serious outbreak of bird flu that threatens us all over Britain. For this reason the poultry sale cannot take place as the disease could quickly spread with so many different birds gathered together in one place. It used to be a very popular event and well-respected breeders from all over the country would bring their birds to auction.
