Stephen Brown UAF Cooperative Extension As many of you may have heard, the first case of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) was identified in late April in a backyard poultry flock in Wasilla. The virus likely hitched a ride to Alaska with a migrating bird, according to Dr. Robert Gerlach, Alaska state veterinarian. HPAI has killed millions of birds in the Lower 48 this year, and Gerlach is asking flock owners to keep a close eye on their poultry for any signs of illness, and to report possible cases to their veterinarians or his office. Gerlach can be reached at bob.gerlach@alaska.gov and 907-375-8215. For poultry owners, biosecurity is key to keep their flocks healthy. Here are some common questions and answers I’m getting about HPAI.

What is bird flu? Avian influenza is an infectious virus that affects both wild birds and domestic poultry. There are two forms, one that spreads easily and can cause severe illness and death in birds, and one that doesn’t. HPAI is the

How do I keep my flock safe? If you find dead migratory birds, do not pick up the birds for testing. Contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at 1-866527-3358, or email ak_mbm@fws.gov. If How is it spread? you must dispose of a dead bird, use gloves HPAI is usually spread by direct contact or a plastic bag, double bag it and either between an infected bird and a healthy bird, bury it or dispose of it in the trash.

you do visit another farm or live bird market, change your footwear and clothing before working with your flock. • Do not bring birds from slaughter channels, especially live bird markets, back to the farm. Are poultry products safe to eat? Avian flu does not present an immediate public health concern and poultry products are safe to eat. Is HPAI affecting the cost of eggs and chicken in grocery stores? HPAI is one of the factors in a rise in poultry products and eggs. According to Cornell University, about 7% of laying hens nationally had been affected as of April. Meat chickens and turkeys have been affected to a lesser degree. Rising costs for feed and fertilizer are also part of the price increases.
