Avian Influenza

Do you keep poultry on your land? Are you complying with the Government’s current requirements related to Avian Influenza?
From 14 December 2020 all bird keepers in England (whether they have pet birds, commercial flocks or just a few birds in a backyard flock) have been required by law to take a range of biosecurity precautions including keeping their birds indoors except in very specific circumstances. See the posters below for further information.
Government encourage all keepers to register their birds and to keep contact details up to date, so that they can make contact with you quickly if there is a disease outbreak in the area and you need to take action.
If you have more than 50 birds, you are legally required to register your flock within one month of their arrival at your premises. If you have less than 50 birds, including pet birds, you are still strongly encouraged to register. Find out how to register your birds by following the link.
