Due to the outbreak of Newcastle disease, the California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) have imposed a quarantine on poultry — including chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, partridges, pheasants, quail, guinea fowl, peafowl (peacocks), doves, pigeons, grouse, swans and ratites.
The quarantine is a precautionary measure, C.W. Feed and our suppliers remain Newcastle disease free
The quarantine has been imposed in four areas of Riverside and San Bernardino counties, including Muscovy, Ontario, Mira Loma and Perris.
This quarantine will remain in force until further notice. At this time baby chicks will not be available for delivery on March 1st as originally planned. As soon as the situation changes we will update you with new delivery dates.
In the meantime, under the quarantine, poultry owners in the affected zones are to hold, segregate and isolate their birds on their current premises or euthanize and dispose of poultry that cannot be isolated.
In addition to practicing good biosecurity, all bird owners should report sick birds or unusual bird deaths to state/federal officials either through their state veterinarian or USDA’s toll-free number at 1-866-536-7593.
