The statutory Code of Practice for the Welfare of Gamebirds Reared for Sporting Purposes provides keepers with guidance on how to meet the welfare needs of their gamebirds as required by the Animal Welfare Act 2006. We are considering how best to engage with industry to identify and disseminate best practice and ensure effective enforcement. Any future update of the gamebird code will consider further improvements.
