Mainland resumes day-old chick export to Hong Kong

CHINA - The Chinese mainland has resumed the export of day-old chicks to Hong Kong nearly two months after the special administrative region suspended such imports to prevent the spread of bird flu.

The first batch of 10,000 chicks arrived in Hong Kong Friday to meet the demand of local chicken farmers, an official with Guangdong Administration of Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine said Saturday.

The administration began on March 21 the inspection into registered chicken farms that export chickens to Hong Kong and all breeding poultry in the farms were confirmed free of bird flu virus early this month.
