Admittedly down on the farm we have done very little in terms of preparing for the onset of bird flu.
We’ve had a chat to the chickens about coop hygeine and advised them not to fraternise with any migrant swans etc. but we drew the line at providing them with individual masks like this:
Can you imagine the ribbing up in the top field:
“Hey, Malcolm, what’s with the facial jewelry?”
“S’not jewelry Dwight, it’s to protect against Avian Influenza”
“Really? How’s that then? How long you been a bird?”
“I’m just taking precautions”
“Sure…. you still look a dork though…”
Really. Some people will go to any lengths to get themselves on this blog.
