(OPEN):
SPRING IS A POPULAR TIME TO START A POULTRY-FLOCK--OR ADD NEW CHICKS.  HOWEVER, MANY OWNERS DON'T REALIZE HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO KEEP THEIR BIRDS DISEASE-FREE.  THAT'S WHY THE U-S-D-A'S "ANIMAL- AND PLANT-HEALTH INSPECTION SERVICE" OFFERS FREE RESOURCES THAT CAN HELP GROWERS PRACTICE GOOD BIOSECURITY.  ASSISTANT DIRECTOR FOR POULTRY-HEALTH, DOCTOR JULIE GAUTHIER ["GO-TEE-AY"], DESCRIBES ITS "DEFEND THE FLOCK"-PROGRAM...

(GAUTHIER):
"
CHICKENS AND OTHER BIRDS CAN BE INFECTED LONG BEFORE THEY SHOW SIGNS OF ILLNESS.  AND, INFECTIONS CAN SPREAD VERY QUICKLY, TO OTHER BACKYARDS--OR EVEN COMMERCIAL-FLOCKS.  THAT'S WHY KEEPING BIRDS SAFE FROM DISEASE IS A TOP RESPONSIBILITY--FOR EVERYONE WHO'S INVOLVED IN RAISING POULTRY.  IT'S ALSO WHY ALL OWNERS SHOULD KNOW THE WARNING-SIGNS--AND WHO TO CONTACT, IF THEY SUSPECT THAT THEIR BIRDS ARE SICK.  WE OFFER DIGITAL AND PRINT RESOURCES--IN MULTIPLE LANGUAGES--THAT CAN HELP NEW AND EXPERIENCED OWNERS MAKE DISEASE-PREVENTION AN EVERYDAY PRACTICE."
