Chuadanga, Aug 30 (bdnews24.com) - Over 400 chickens of a poultry farm at Damurhuda Upazila in Chuadanga district have been culled as those were found infected with H5N1 virus, commonly known as bird flu.

"We got the report on Monday night and immediately decided to cull the chickens," Islam added.

The livestock official also said that the farm would be kept under watch for three months and an order was issued banning the trade of chickens in one and a half kilometers surrounding the farm.

On Saturday, as many as 21,590 chickens of Rafid Poultry and Hatchery of the same district, infected with bird flu, were culled and 8,400 eggs were destroyed.

India: Field turns birds' burial ground - 200 avian species die after eating poisoned puffed rice
Balurghat, Jan. 5: More than 200 birds, mostly pet pigeons and domesticated hens, were found dead at Purbachal here since last night after the avian species had purportedly consumed puffed rice mixed with poison.

The mass death of birds had initially led people to suspect that avian flu had struck the area. But the animal husbandry authorities ruled out that the deaths had been caused by bird flu. The disease had killed thousands of domesticated chickens in Balurghat in the past.


"Nearly 200 birds and even some stray dogs and cats died between last evening and this morning. I have spoken to the residents and some of them suspect that the owner of a wheat field had spread a high dose of pesticide in a bag of puffed rice that the birds consumed and died," said Arijit Mahanta, a former RSP councillor from the area.

The RSP leader said he had been shown a plastic carry bag with puffed rice in the farmland. "Most of the birds that died were pigeons raised by the local people. We were surprised that the animal resources development department did not collect samples and send them for tests," Mahanta said.
