Keeping Poultry

By law you must register if you own or are responsible for a poultry premises with 50 or more birds.  This requirement also applies even if the premises is only stocked with 50 or more birds for part of the year.  At present, premises with fewer than 50 birds are not required to register, but we encourage keepers to do so voluntarily.

 

This does not necessarily mean 50 of one species (although this may be the case) but 50 overall, for example if you have 30 chickens, 15 geese, 4 ducks and 1 rhea you need to register.
