Small scale poultry keepers survey

As a member of a research team with interest in national disease threats I am interested in your behaviour and attitude as a small scale (between 1 and 50) poultry keeper. The more information we have on how many birds there are in the country and where they are kept, the better we are able to plan for and respond to disease outbreaks.
Often we find that commercial producers can suggest that backyard keepers have poor husbandry skills, but we believe that backyard poultry keepers have the best interests of their poultry at heart. However there is no evidence to substantiate this. Help prove that we are right by completing this survey at
Many thanks,

Are you a student doing this for your own study or is this a study funded by the college? Where do
we find the research protocols/permissions/ethical approvals etc. please?
