Mexico destroys 1 million chickens for bird flu

MEXICO CITY (AP) —

The country's Agriculture Department says that 129 farms in the western state of Jalisco have been inspected. Flu was confirmed in birds at 24 of the sites, and tests continued on most of the rest.

The farms in question have been placed under quarantine, the department said in a Tuesday press statement.

The outbreak has caused price increases in chicken and egg products in Mexico.
