DEFRA have released guidance in relation to Avian Influenza which includes a Prevention Zone declaration for all poultry and captive birds. The Zone that covers the whole of England and Scotland will remain in place for a period of 30 days – until 6th January 2017.

A DEFRA representative has advised that this requires the immediate and compulsory confinement of pigeons buy inderal drug within their lofts/housing. This is necessary to avoid contact with wild birds.

We have received a number of enquiries asking whether or not shows are permissible. We are waiting for confirmation from DEFRA. As soon as information is received we will update this website.

Updates will also be posted on this website as and when received.
