Article from KETV, excerpt :

" LINCOLN, Neb. : State Agriculture officials plan to slaughter three quarantined flocks of birds in southeast Nebraska to prevent the spread of avian flu.

Agriculture Department spokeswoman Christin Kamm said a case of avian flu was discovered at a recent bird sale and traced back to the quarantined flocks of chickens, pheasants and quail.
