Measures to promote biosecurity include cleaning and disinfecting vehicles and equipment that have come into contact with poultry.
Flocks should be fenced off to separate them from wild birds.
In an urgent statement aimed at poultry keepers, NFU Scotland said: "Low pathogenic Avian Influenza (AI), thought to have been contracted from wild birds, was confirmed in a Scottish free range laying flock at the end of last week.
