Avian Influenza

  • Avian influenza is a virus infecting wild birds and waterfowl as well as domestic poultry, such as chickens, turkeys, quail, and geese. Wild birds commonly have avian influenza and sometimes spread it to domestic birds through direct or indirect transmission. Ducks are considered carriers and geese can get the disease, but do not generally pass it on.
