US - Lynn Bougher opened her purse yesterday, pulled out a picture of her 15 chickens and smiled. &quot;These are my girls,&quot; the Easton woman said yesterday during a workshop on avian influenza at the state Farm Show Complex. &quot;I don&#39;t want anyone to take away my birds, so I thought I better learn about avian influenza.&quot; Most avian flu workshops are geared toward poultry farm operators who raise hundreds of thousands of birds for meat and eggs. Yesterday&#39;s focused on small-scale poultry producers, show bird enthusiasts, game-bird breeders and owners of hobby and specialty flocks. <i>Source: The Patriot News</i>
