Bird flu im­pact on auc­tion

Your Chickens - - Charlotte's Chickens -

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.
