UK: Time Running Out to Register Poultry

Poultry owners have less than two months to register their flocks on the national Poultry Register. The poultry register has been set up to boost government and industry's ability to tackle an outbreak of avian influenza (bird flu). Poultry keepers who own flocks of 50 or more birds have until 28 February 2006 to register their birds. They can do this by:

1) calling freephone number 0800 634 1112 and registering by phone
2) calling the above number and getting a registration form sent to them by post,
completing and returning it
3) downloading a form from the DEFRA website, completing and returning it
