The Great Bird Flu Hoax

By now most of us realize that much of what is reported on the media can’t be trusted. Yet, it seems some things are more convincing than others. Such seems to be the case with this “Bird Flu” outbreak. I read a few headlines this morning and I felt a burning desire to set this record straight!

There are hugely mistaken policy analysis and debate surrounding this and, frankly, flat out lies being told in the media concerning it. We could argue about the “why” behind it, but the bottom line is, the lies are flourishing no matter what the reason. I want to at least share the truth with our friends who follow our website.

I’ll get right to the point. While panic in the media and at government levels is all focused on the threat from migratory birds and small-scale free-range poultry operations, the REAL reason for the development and spread of the disease has been quietly ignored (or brushed under the rug on purpose.)

If you take time to use a little discernment, you can see the many holes in their theory.

Media and the CDC say that they are ordering all birds to be confined to “protect” them from wild birds that carry this bird flu. HOWEVER, the ONLY birds effected by it are those living in confinement. This fact alone should cause us to ask questions. These birds are already away from all wild birds. Clearly, confining the birds does not protect them.

Instead, the REAL reason for the bird flu is birds who are living in filthy conditions, crammed together with hundreds or thousands of other birds, little or no daylight or fresh air. It's also a result of the conditions in which these birds are hatched, transported and eventually raised. Watch closely and you will see, it’s the big producers that have to kill all their birds because of the bird flu. And the flu follows the patterns of these producers. It does not take a medical degree to figure out, when you cram a lot of animals (or people for that matter) into a small space, there can be more spread of a virus.

These confined birds are at higher risk to begin with because of the conditions in which they live and the stress they must endure daily, until they die and are tossed out of the building. Of course they will end up sick. The conditions are not clean, allowing super bugs to take over.

In contrast, our birds, living out on pastures (with wild birds flying over-head daily) have never contracted any flu or other disease. Healthy birds with strong immune systems are able to fight off bacteria and even some viruses, if should they come into contact with them. If bird flu is present in wild birds, then why over the past 10 years has our farm never encountered it? Never lost a single chicken to it? After raising thousands of meat chickens and laying hens over the past 10 years we have never suffered even one loss to bird flu. Why would this be? These are good questions to ask. These are questions the media can’t and won't answer.

Our birds live long, healthy lives with pasture rotation which keeps parasites at bay. Eating a diet that is full of variety.

Please do not believe the lies you see at the CDC site, the media and government reports. Don’t just google search it, use a different browser and research it yourself. Ask yourself: when have you ever heard of a small, local farm that has dealt with the bird flu? Believe me, you would know it if they did because small farmers have a reputation to protect and if eggs slowed down on a small farm, all the customers would know it.

The big producers with birds in complete confinement, are the ones with this issue and that is a fact. Those are the companies that can hide behind government subsidies and media covers.
