As a member of a research team with interest in national disease threats I am interested in your behaviour and attitude as a small scale (between 1 and 50) poultry keeper. The more information we have on how many birds there are in the country and where they are kept, the better we are able to plan for and respond to disease outbreaks. Often we find that commercial producers can suggest that backyard keepers have poor husbandry skills, but we believe that backyard poultry keepers have the best interests of their poultry at heart. However there is no evidence to substantiate this. Help prove that we are right by completing this survey at http://www.sruc.ac.uk/tellusaboutyourbirds
