About 71 chickens have been reportedly found dead in Padampur village in last 48 hours. However, neither the animal husbandry nor the health department seems to be taking any cognisance of it. On the contrary, the veterinary doctors are snubbing the villagers for reporting these deaths saying that it could spread scare in the region...

    The above article goes on to say that dead crows have also been observed in the area.
    Crows have been dying in Gondia at least since late December. . Early on bird flu was excluded, but seems to have crept back into the news reports. To my knowledge no "bird flu" positive samples have been confirmed. Looking at video of the sick crows to my untrained eye it looks like Newcastle disease -
    Whether or not this is what killed the chickens will require further investigation from the Authorities.
