The H5N2 outbreak of Sunshine Farms in Osceola Co, Iowa is easily the largest outbreak to date. APHIS has cited 5.3 million layer hens, but owner states total was 3.8 million. Media reports have cited 25 barns, but Google Maps shows 23. In recent outbreaks the H5N2 has been confirmed to individual barns in most cases. In Minnesota the first 12 outbreaks involved farms with 3-12 barns and only one had 2 barns infected.

However, media report for Osceola has cited initial culling of 3 barns suggesting spread, which increases concerns of human cases.
