Due to the suspicion of avian influenza (bird flu), 30,000 hens have to be killed in Delbrück (Germany). On Monday morning, this will be done by fumigation with carbon dioxide, the district of Paderborn announced on Sunday. According to the avian influenza ordinance, the animals in the epidemic flock must already be killed if there is a clear clinical suspicion. In addition, a surveillance zone is set up around the suspected infection area, where chickens, ducks, geese and other poultry on other farms must remain in their enclosures.
