Australian Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry: Stay of destruction of Rare Breed Poultry

This petition had 3,226 supporters


This is the first importation of Rare Poultry in 60 years and is required to ensure the preservation of these types of birds for future generations. Whilst the last thing the Importation Syndicate wants is to bring in any form of disease. The decision to destroy all birds for one chick which died of salmonella in the first week (this is already in Australia), whilst subsequent testing of birds since has proven negative. We feel the Syndicate made up of Poultry Fanciers across Australia, deserve the opportunity to seek to save the birds they have waited so long for.
