Redcar & Cleveland council is warning bird owners to follow new Bird Flu measures put in place by the government.
Anyone who is caught not following the new rules could face police prosecution.
Owners of chickens, turkeys, geese or ducks in Redcar and Cleveland have to either keep them indoors or take special measures to keep them away from wild birds.
To stop the spread of bird flu on farms and allotments owners should make sure that feed and water is not accessible to wild birds.
Bird houses should also be disinfected on a regular basis.
The rules will apply until the 6th of January and have been put in place because of increasing reports of bird flu in mainland Europe.
