I know I’ve mentioned this every time I’ve written about it, but KELOland news is the first Mainstream Media source who is also noting that those cute chickens in your backyard who give you eggs could be bird-flu vectors:
Poultry producers across the country are losing their flocks to the bird flu. There are even two cases of backyard chickens getting bird flu in Montana.
Here in KELOLAND, urban chicken farming has been growing in popularity over the last few years.
Lisa Zandt raises chickens and turkeys just north of Sioux Falls at her home along the Big Sioux River.
“I feel it’s important to be as self-sustaining as possible and I like to know where my food comes from,” Zandt said.
But her food supply could be threatened by the bird flu.
