About 180,000 hens infected with bird flu have been culled at a poultry farm in Daghestan
About 180,000 hens infected with bird flu have been culled at a poultry farm in Daghestan, a republic in southern Russia, a local spokesman said. "Overall, there were 280,000 hens at the poultry farm, including 104,000 chicks," the spokesman for the republic's Emergency Situations Ministry said. "The chicks were kept separately from the hens; no cases of avian flu have been registered among them and they will not be destroyed," the spokesman said On February 5-10, a mass death of hens was registered at a poultry farm near the capital of Daghestan, Makhachkala. Pathogenic samples were sent for tests, which revealed the bird flu virus. The authorities decided to cull all the infected poultry at the farm and impose quarantine regulations. No cases of human infection have been registered, the spokesman said. From January 15 to February 1, 350,000 birds died at the Eldama poultry farm in the Karabudakhkent district, south of the republic's capital near the Caspian Sea coast. In the last few weeks, the bird flu virus has been detected in wild fowl, including migratory birds, in six Russian southern regions: the republics of Kabardino-Balkaria, Daghestan, Chechnya and Kalmykia, and the Krasnodar and Stavropol territories
