Compulsory registration of poultry and other captive birds.

The government is moving to make the registration of most captive birds in UK compulsory, as part of its avian influenza and other notifiable diseases management strategy. Up until now it has been mandatory to register only if you had 50 or more birds but from October 1st 2024 this will change.

This will not include individual pet birds kept permanently indoors (a parrot, budgie or canary are cited), but will include those kept outside in aviaries, plus pigeons, birds of prey and all types of poultry such as chickens, ducks and geese.
