BIRD FLU

Bird flu, also known as avian influenza, is an infectious viral disease of birds, especially wild waterfowls such as ducks and geese. It is a viral infection that primarily infects birds, including chicken, other poultry, and wild aquatic birds.

This highly-contagious disease spreads from infected birds to other winged creatures through contact with nasal, and respiratory secretions and also due to contamination of feed and water. Bird flu virus is sensitive to heat, and dies at cooking temperatures.
