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.
