Nizamabad: 1,000 birds died in a poultry farm at Yanampally village in Dichpally mandal of the district on Wednesday, but Animal Husbandry department officials said it was unlikely that the cause of death was bird flu since there were no symptoms of the disease.

He and other department officials visited the poultry farm, collected the dead birds and their blood samples and sent them to the lab in Hyderabad for tests to determine the cause of death.

In all, the poultry farm had raised 8,000 birds, of which about 5,000 were despatched to Shatavahana Hatcheries two days ago. Of the remaining 3,000 birds, about a 1,000 died on Wednesday.
