I haven't heard anything, but I have been working a lot of hours the last couple of days, so haven't seen much of the news.

DEFRA has this - not much info, but it is a backyard flock.

Mine are still in their covered runs, as we are in a high risk area and are still being told to maintain bio-security measures.  I was considering letting them out soon, but not now  :(
