The current outbreak of bird flu in many parts of the country could well be the worst to hit the local poultry industry. Large-scale poultry producers are already reporting losses running into hundreds of millions of rand and more than a quarter of broiler breeder hens that lay eggs to produce chickens for meat production have died or been culled.
