Via The Poultry Site: Georgia reports first suspected bird flu case.
A dead chicken showing all the signs of being infected with bird flu has been found in the Khashur region of Georgia, according to the agriculture ministry.
Blood samples from the bird have been sent to the veterinary laboratory in Tbilisi, and results are expected later Thursday.
Georgia, which has common borders with Turkey, is vulnerable to the virus. It has been accused by neighbouring governments of suppressing information about the bird flu cases.
