Federal and state agriculture officials are confirming a case of low pathogenic Avian Flu in a western Kentucky commercial poultry flock. This type of influenza doesn't typically pose a fatal threat to chickens.
Kentucky State Veterinarian Robert Stout says the presence of low pathogenic avian influenza came from samples taken at a Christian County operation.
This poultry flu may cause no disease or mild illness. Highly pathogenic Avian Influenza can cause severe disease with high mortality.
