A private government report obtained this week in response to questions over the decision to kill over 500,000 chickens in Victoria, Australia shows that the people making the decision had no verifiable evidence of a high-risk infectious outbreak.

The chicken farms that were claimed to be infected were so distant from any possible bird source that it was unlikely or impossible to have happened without deliberate intervention or manipulation of testing.

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (“CSIRO”), the Australian equivalent of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, is the closest possible source of the “outbreak” and it is not the first time they have been involved in the emergence of “new” viruses.

The chicken cull would appear to be a manufactured crisis. So who manufactured this “crisis”? Dr. Ah Kahn Syed investigates.

One Flew Over the Chickens’ Nest, Arkmedic’s Blog, 10 June 2024


This week I received a copy of a government document sent in response to questions about this unusual event in Australia – the culling of 500,000 chickens: ‘Bird flu spread fears mean 500,000 chickens must be culled’.

Now, you might think that isn’t that much of a story – after all our food safety is paramount, so if there is a flock of chooks that is infected, we need to act early and cull them, right?

Not so fast. Bird flu is called bird flu because it affects birds. And just as the FDA told us that we are not horses (despite having to take this tweet and webpage down after a court order), we are not birds either. So, except in rare and odd circumstances (or some psychopathic scientist decides to make it adapt to humans), bird flu is zero risk to the human population. And once that chook has gone through the fryers at KFC any trace of the chookie sniffles will be long gone anyway.

So what event was so catastrophic that half a million chickens had to be culled (that is, killed, not to be eaten but to be disposed of without ever touching the food chain)?

Apparently, an outbreak in three farms of H7N3 bird flu1, with another farm 100km away affected by a different H7 strain – H7N9. And according to WAHIS (the animal outbreak monitoring agency), these are the only outbreaks this year in Australia – and they have appeared almost as far South as you can possibly get.

Near a place called Geelong in Victoria, the same state as Melbourne.

Now the interesting thing about the city of Geelong, for those who pay attention, is that it is the home of Australia’s version of the Wuhan Institute of Virology – the CSIRO. This, of course, is completely coincidental because there are obviously other routes that a bird-borne infectious outbreak can take other than being created by a scientific institute famous for manipulating identifying “novel” bat viruses.

As most bird flus are supposed to originate in Asia here is a nice map view of the route that the infected birds would take to get to Geelong. It’s a long way to fly, which may be why there isn’t any “naturally occurring” H5N1 (Asian Bird Flu) in Australia2. And if there were infectious diseases coming from Asia, you would see them in Queensland or the Northern Territories first.

In fact, most Asian birds tend not to migrate to Australia at all, which is partly why Australian birds are different from the rest of the world including such oddities as the Kookaburra, Black Swan, Cassowary and Ibis (commonly known as a bin chook for its uncanny ability to get food out of public dustbins).

So, if Australia is going to get H5N1 Bird Flu naturally it is going to be a bit of a tall order … unless … The clucky Bird Flu perpetrators come through the back door, from Antarctica.

Well of course Australia’s national broadcaster, the ABC, is one step ahead of you there with this amazingly clever prebunking video including CNN-level “dead-birds-in-a-row” staged dead bird carnage images – to really make you think it’s bad out there.

And if you REALLY aren’t sure how DEADLY this is, we are not only going to show you dead pelicans lined up on snow but WE ARE GOING TO PUT 100 MILLION KILLED IN RED – and make it look like the COVID dashboard.

There. Are you scared yet? No? Well, we haven’t finished. Certainly Jo Sillince, CEO of the “Australian Chicken Growers Council” isn’t, because she appears in both the ABC’s news article telling us how scary this could all be AND in the video above telling us that the main risk is from Antarctica.

So, if you’re not scared of Joanne, or the ABC, you damn well better be because there is BIRD FLU COMING FROM ANTARCTICA TO KILL THE CHICKENS.

And, not wanting to point out the obvious or anything but getting bird flu from Antarctica is not that easy. You see the major migration patterns of birds don’t really include a pathway from Antarctica to Australia.

And even if the odd Antarctic Albatross were to accidentally find its way to the coffee shops of Melbourne it would have struggled to pick up an Asian bird flu in the snowy wastes of Antarctica.

And then there are the penguins. Penguins are birds, in case you didn’t know. They can fly but only in the fluid medium of water (most birds fly in the fluid medium of water vapour, i.e. air). So, they could make it to the south coast of Australia to drop their bird flu droppings – but not much further without a long walk. And if you saw a family of penguins on the road to Geelong, I’m pretty sure you would have seen it in the news.

And just before we start with the real story of what is going on I need to give some background on Michelle Wille, friend and co-authors of Edward Holmes, co-authors of the EcoHealth scientists discussed further below.

Michelle is the senior scientist in the “Antarctic Chickens” video above and essentially runs the “scary virus” campaigns in Australia, sucking up huge amounts of funding for “pandemic preparedness” which never actually prevents pandemics.

Here she is attempting to scare the bejeezus out of you with an article in The Conversation, which hosted the very same buddy Eddie Holmes two years ago with a similar story telling us how we were all crazy for thinking that covid came from a laboratory. Except it turns out that it did.

Chickens, ducks, seals and cows: a dangerous bird flu strain is knocking on Australia’s door, The Conversation, 22 May 2024


Can you see how this works?

  1. Create virus using either an existing virus, or a novel virus or a manipulated virus.
  2. Create scare about virus, even if it’s not that dangerous (if at all).
  3. Create bogeyman conspiracy theorist for public ridicule if anybody questions the creation of a virus.
  4. Rinse and repeat, taking in millions of dollars of public funding to “prevent” the next scary virus that you don’t prevent at all.

The Crazy Explanations

So, could there be another explanation than Antarctic chickens flying over the Southern Ocean and infecting their temperate brethren?

Well, given that the CSIRO is in the very neighbourhood where the majority of the outbreaks are we might want to look there to see if, perhaps, they might possibly have had anything to do with an N7N3 outbreak next door, or if in fact, a H7N3 outbreak is of any consequence at all.

So, let’s look at the two scenarios (which are not mutually exclusive) but before we do just a little reminder of the reason for the title for those that are not old enough to remember one of the most awarded films of all time. I was contemplating captioning it, but I’ll leave it like this for now.
