Lollypop Farm takes measures to protect its birds from avian flu

Lollypop Farm is taking measures to protect its birds from avian flu after a case was recently detected in Monroe County.

The Monroe County Department of Health reported its first case of avian flu on Friday, April 1. A non-commercial backyard flock of chickens, ducks, and pheasants tested positive for the highly contagious disease. The flu strain is not a danger to humans but can infect numerous domestic and wild bird species, according to News10 NBC.


According to Monday, April 4 Facebook post from Lollypop Farm, the animal shelter said it has secured its birds- except emus- in non-public spaces as a precautionary measure. Staff are also sanitizing their hands and shoes before entering areas where the birds are kept.
