Claim : 9000 Turkeys Have Died On Quarantined French Farm

From Recombinomics :
"The Farms Ministry said a high mortality rate among turkeys was discovered at the farm, which has more than 11,000 birds and is situated in the department of Ain, where two cases of the disease have already been confirmed in wild ducks.

Local sources said around 80 percent of the birds at the farm, which is in a region famous for the quality of its chickens, had already died. Test results are due on Friday.

The above comments indicate almost 9000 turkeys have already died on the farm in France. The farm is near Ain, where an H5N1 infected wild duck had been reported. It is likely that the turkeys will also be H5N1 positive."
