Two hotbeds of the H5N1 virus have been discovered in the province, the ministry said.
In early December the Chinese Health Ministry warned that new outbreaks of bird flu were likely in the country.
The last confirmed outbreak of bird flu in China was registered last week in Hong Kong, when over 80,000 chickens were slaughtered after samples came back positive for the virus.
According to the World Health Organization, avian influenza has so far killed 243 people out of a total 387 confirmed cases worldwide.
Although there have been no incidences of human to human infection, experts fear that it may mutate into a form that could easily be transmitted from person to person, causing a global pandemic.
