LINCOLN, Tenn. - A commercial chicken farm in Tennessee is now under quarantine after its birds tested positive for bird flu!

The farm alerted authorities Friday that a large number of their flock was dying.

Industry giant Tyson Foods contracts with the farm and plans to euthanize the entire flock in order to ensure that none of the contaminated chickens make it to the grocery store aisles.

Other poultry farms in a 6-mile radius will be tested for the virus to make sure that the virus has not been passed along.

This is the first known case of avian flu this year in the U.S. However, China has confirmed 460 human infections since October.
