Case study 2: Lethargic backyard chooks

Upon successfully completing the full EAD course, you will:

  • be reminded of your professional and legal obligations to identify and report cases of suspected EADs to government authorities and be able to identify appropriate reporting mechanisms
  • understand key response strategies and intervention options in an EAD event
  • be aware of key roles for private veterinarians in the detection, investigation, reporting, and response to EAD events
  • know where to source technical resources on EADs

Following this case study, you should additionally be refreshed on the clinical features of some potential EADs in backyard poultry, and understand the emergency response pathway that would follow the diagnosis of an EAD in a backyard poultry flock.

This module is expected to take you 20 minutes to complete.

The development of this course was funded by the Australian Government’s Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper, the government’s plan for stronger farmers and a stronger economy.
