This information was produced using data from the Great Britain Poultry Register taken on
The Poultry Register combines the import of birds and eggs from outside GB into one single question.
The GB Poultry Register captures data under the Avian Influenza (Preventive Measures) (No. 2) Regulations 2005. Registration is mandatory for premises with 50 or more birds kept for commercial purposes. In addition, the register also includes voluntary registrations for non-commercial premises and those where fewer than 50 poultry are kept.
The completeness of the data is dependant on the level of compliance with the legislation as specified above. Owners are required to de-register if they no longer keep poultry.
