Recording poultry movements

If you own (or are in charge of) 10 or more birds which are reared for breeding, the production of meat or the production of eggs, then you must keep a record of birds entering or leaving the premises at which the birds are kept.

Records must be kept for the following birds:

  • chickens
  • turkeys
  • geese
  • ducks
  • guinea fowl
  • pigeons
  • pheasants
  • partridges
  • quail

Records to be kept

The records that must be kept are: 

  • each species of bird and the number of birds of that species entering or leaving the premises
  • the address of the premises
  • the name and address of the person from whom the birds were obtained
  • the date of the birds’ arrival at, and departure from, the premises
  • the birds’ destination on leaving the premises (if known)
  • the purpose for which the birds left the premises
  • the name and address of the person to whom the birds were transferred

You must keep the record for at least 12 months from the date the birds leave the premises and will be required to produce your records to an inspector if requested.
