    Bird flu detected in chicken breeding facility in Tennessee
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A commercial chicken breeding facility in south-central Tennessee has been hit by a strain of bird flu, agriculture officials said Sunday.

    The state Agriculture Department said in a news release that tests confirmed the presence of the H7 strain of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza, or HPAI, at a facility in Lincoln County. The facility alerted the state veterinarian's office on Friday about an increase in chicken deaths.

    The statement did not name the facility. The facility and about 30 other poultry farms within about a six-mile radius of the site are under quarantine.

    That's what I read also, from Reuters. Some 76,000 birds were to be culled from that one farm alone.
    I wouldn't eat Tyson chicken anyway. Before their Jacksonville processing plant closed there were contract farmers everywhere around here. Including one down at the end of our road who had over 50,000 birds.
    The Tyson plant was constantly being written up for health violations.
    Like chicken fecal matter on processed birds being packaged for sale, as one example.

    I just hope that the next pandemic does not have "patient zero" come from MN like in Contagion.

    Birds being sick from flue does not mean the humans having contact with them will always get that strain / type of flu however they might. If humans get this strain of flu it might be transmitted to other humans. When it becomes easy to transmit person to person you got yourself a pandemic.
