Broiler breeder flock has AI

A flock of 18,000 broiler breeder chickens in Northern Georgia is the latest to fall victim to an outbreak of avian influenza.

More than 200,000 birds have been culled across Tennessee , Kentucky, Alabama and Georgia in the last month.

But this pales in comparison with millions of birds that have either been infected or sacrificed to prevent the spread of avian flu in Asia and Europe.
