    Default Newcastle Disease Alert

    https://www.gov.uk/government/news/p...castle-disease

    Read the Linked article before you panic!!

    This is part of it:-
    Poultry species that are affected by Newcastle Disease may show the following clinical signs:
    • Respiratory distress, such as gaping beak, coughing, sneezing, gurgling and rattling
    • Nervous behaviour, such as tremors, paralysis and twisting of the neck
    • Unusually watery faeces that are yellowish-green in colour
    • Depression and a lack of appetite
    • Produce fewer eggs which could be misshapen and soft-shelled
