Avian influenza hits another backyard coop in B.C.: industry group
The Canadian Press
By The Canadian Press | The Canadian Press – 37 minutes ago

CHILLIWACK, B.C. - An industry group says a backyard chicken coop in B.C.'s Fraser Valley is the latest to be hit with avian influenza, marking the first such case in more than a month.
An outbreak that began last December hit 11 commercial chicken and turkey farms in Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Langley, as well as a backyard coop in Langley.
Ray Nickel of the B.C. Poultry Association says avian influenza has been detected at a backyard coop in Chilliwack with about 80 egg-laying chickens.
The outbreak has prompted 24 jurisdictions to impose trade restrictions on B.C. or Canadian poultry, and Nickel says it's not clear how the latest case will affect those measures.
Nickel says the most recent infection underscores the threat avian flu continues to pose to the province's poultry industry.
The type of avian flu that has been circulating in B.C. and the northwestern United States does not pose a risk to humans, but it is highly contagious and deadly among birds.

Backyard chicken farm in Chilliwack hit with avian flu

Fifty-one days after the last reported case of avian influenza was detected in the Fraser Valley, the virus has hit a hobby farm in Chilliwack.

A U.S. biomedical researcher and avian flu expert told the Times the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) arrived at the backyard farm on Prairie Central Road early Thursday morning.

And Ray Nickel of the B.C. Poultry Association confirmed to the Canadian Press that avian flu had been detected in a backyard coop with approximately 80 egg-laying chickens.

CFIA had not yet responded to a request for confirmation about the new cases by Friday at 2 p.m.

The current outbreak in the Fraser Valley began on Dec. 1 with a Greendale broiler breeder farm where 13,000 chickens had to be culled.

From there it spread to a number of farms in Abbotsford, with the last confirmed case at a commercial farm in Langley on Dec. 17 where 11,800 chickens had to be euthanized.

The total number of affected birds as of the new year was 245,600.

The virus also was also detected south of the border in December as ducks tested positive in Lynden, Wash., just 15 kilometres from the Fraser Valley cluster. Three captive falcons that were fed hunter-killed wild birds also tested positive in the U.S.

On Jan. 8, the CFIA said it continued to monitor the situation and, while there had been no new cases in 20 days, the cleanup on affected farms continued. Disease control measures were to remain in place for 21 days after the cleaning and disinfection of all confirmed infected premises.

The agency said "strict surveillance will continue in the area for the next 90 days." Only after that time—which would have come to April 8—would the outbreak be declared over.

This strain of avian influenza poses no risk to humans, but is highly contagious and deadly to birds.

More bird flu in the Fraser Valley

More bird flu in the Fraser Valley

Another case of bird flu in the Fraser Valley.

“It looked like it was really moving down south, maybe the threat wasn’t the same here, even though we are being told it is, and than this pops up.”

Ray Nickel with the BC Poultry Association says a backyard chicken coop in Chilliwack is the latest to be hit, marking the first such case in more than a month.

“I think it was 80 egg-laying chickens, and the birds have been destroyed.”

Nickel says he believes it won’t slow down the already affected farmers who are trying to get things back to normal, nor for current trade restrictions to be removed on BC poultry.

The bird flu has been confirmed on 11 farms since December, as well as a non-commercial property.
