The 2010 “Backyard Biosecurity: Keeping Your Birds Healthy” calendar is now available.

As you update your schedule for 2010, poultry owners might consider tacking on your wall a poultry calendar available through the USDA. The “Backyard Biosecurity: Keeping Your Birds Healthy” calendar contains full-color photographs of chickens and other poultry and includes information on how to keep your poultry disease-free.

The calendar is offered free from the USDA every year as part of its ongoing effort to educate backyard poultry owners on what they can do to protect their poultry against infectious diseases. It includes tips on what poultry owners should do if they suspect their birds are infected with a disease such as influenza.

To request a copy of the 2010 calendar and learn more about protecting your poultry, visit the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service website.
