France tests dead birds for Bird Flu

France tests dead birds, does not suspect bird flu

Officials are carrying out tests to see what caused the deaths of some 4,000 chickens on a farm in northeastern France, but initial indications did not point to bird flu, the agriculture ministry said on Monday. The ministry said in a statement that the birds died suddenly on Saturday while another 3,500 chickens at the same site appeared completely health. “The clinical aspects (of the case) as well as the results of the autopsies do not especially indicate a diagnostic of bird flu,” the statement said, adding that full results were not expected until Tuesday. The owner of the farm told LCI television that it was “99 percent certain it is not bird flu”.
