"Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) is one of the most serious diseases that can affect your poultry flock. An HPAI outbreak is an animal disease emergency. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and States have authority to respond to and protect our country's poultry and livestock from harmful diseases. [...] USDA will compensate an individual for birds that must be destroyed using species-specific calculators. We also pay for some other losses, such as eggs that must be destroyed."
