First, we heard the news of Bird Flu detected at a Poultry Facility in Tennessee and now we are getting reports of Bird flu now infecting poultry at three different sites in northern Alabama. Again this story is coming shortly after the reports of it found at two farms in neighboring Tennessee. More chickens are being destroyed to contain the virus according to reports

from the state and industry officials in Alabama.  Although this seems like bad news, according to sources, these cases in Alabama are the less dangerous form of the disease, known as low pathogenic, because the infected flocks did not have high levels of mortality.  This report comes from Ray Hilburn the associate director of the Alabama Poultry and Egg Association, an industry group.
