Do not bring infection from a farm on your clothes, footwear or hands. Clean and disinfect vehicles after visiting a farm. Limit and control access to poultry flocks. Have pressure washers, brushes, hoses, water and an approved disinfectant available. Regularly clean and disinfect all crates, containers and other equipment before and after use. Minimise contact between poultry and wild birds. Prevent accumulation of standing water and remove spilled feed that could attract wild birds. Maintain buildings to ensure that wild birds do not nest or roost in them. Keep wild birds, dogs, cats, rodents or other livestock out of poultry buildings and feed stores. Have an active rodent and pest control system in place. Be vigilant for evidence of vermin. Monitor vermin activity by baiting and trapping. Supply only clean fresh drinking water to birds. Water lines and drinkers must be flushed through and cleaned regularly. Feed bins, hoppers and feeding equipment must be cleaned and maintained regularly. Feed silos and containers must be sealed to prevent animals and wild birds contaminating feed. Feed should only be obtained from a supplier that operates in accordance with relevant Defra Codes of Practice. Damaged eggs, dead birds, litter and manure may carry disease. Dispose them promptly and properly. Disinfect the coup and all equipment (including ducting, drains, etc.) and carry out rodent and other pest control. Cleaning equipment and protective clothing should also be cleaned and disinfected.
