Cross sectional studies of live bird market in Bali and Lombok reveal that live bird movement along the supply chain came from various sources within the island such as villages, and sub-district traditional markets. From these markets, the birds are purchased by customers for different purposes such as consumption, ceremonies, religious festivals, and for another stock. The quantity of birds moving along the movement pathways tend to increase during Galungan and Kuningan in Bali, and Maulid and Hari Raya months in Lombok. This study confirms for positive behaviors of all parties involved in the live birds markets - want and tend to buy healthy birds, not to buy the sick birds. Transportation and management of birds at the markets reveal some behaviors that against such recommended biosecurity practices. Collectors and Vendors do not really separate the birds according to the bird species and sources, mixing the birds in a cage during the transportation and selling at the markets. Slaughter activity is another point in the live bird movement pathway where risk for AI transmission is identified. People that involve in bird slaughter apply minimal biosecurity requirements. They do not use hand gloves, mask, boots, clean cloths, and other clean equipments. The slaughter areas are also neglected for their good and better slaughter management. On the basis of these findings, there is a need to take strategic collective action to help all stakeholders along the supply chain comply with AI Control Strategies. Policy and non-policy approaches are needed in addressing issues that exist around the live bird movement in those high risky points!
