Jan. 29, 2008-Dates have now been set in Ontario, Nova Scotia and British Columbia for Bird Health Information Sessions by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

The CFIA is teaming up with provincial governments to deliver the information sessions, aimed at helping small flock owners prevent and detect disease in their birds.

Topics include preventing the introduction and spread of disease, spotting the signs of illness in birds, and what to expect if a bird disease is detected in your area. Information kiosks will be set up for various subjects, and animal health experts will be on hand to answer questions throughout the evening.

Three sessions are scheduled in February and March 2008 and more are planned for later in the year in other regions across Canada. The sessions are open to the general public. All small flock owners and bird enthusiasts are encouraged to attend.
