A Bird Flu Concern

Now that avian flu has reached farther into Europe, I'm sure it's only a matter of time before it comes to the U.S. I was reading in this Reuters' story that part of the safety measures includes a ban on letting domestic birds outside. Naturally the biggest concern is the impact on human lives. But these developments lead me to wonder: does this mean that those organic, free-range chickens we all love to eat will be the first hit with avian flu when it reaches domestic poultry?

Remarkably - most "free range" chicken in fact never see a range. They just get to roam on the concrete floor of the chicken factory a little more than other chickens.
