    DemfromCT may add to this, but, as I understand it, your chickens can only catch this flu from other birds. This means NO birds (ducks and geese being the most likely carriers) can fly over the cage and contaminate it with feces. If you really have no contact; no worries. Keeping the roosting area and cage clean and dry is just a good idea anyway.

    Educating small farmers is another place where we might be dropping the ball. Friends who have chickens haven't seen anything about this either.
