UK Govt Requires ALL Home-grown Chickens to Be Registered to Tackle Bird Flu

People in Great Britain who keep home-grown chickens in their yards will now be forced to register them with the government under new rules to combat bird flu.

Those who own birds for their supply of eggs or as pets will have to register them with the government.

Under the proposed rules, bird owners would also be required to update their information annually, including contact details, the location, species, number, and what they are used for.

The law would also apply to people who own home-grown chickens, birds of prey, and pigeon fanciers as the government begins ‘efforts’ to tackle bird flu.

Defra’s consultation document says:

“This would mean any person who keeps one or more of any type of bird (including racing pigeons) will be required to register the bird(s) by providing specified information relating to those birds, the purpose for which they keep the bird(s) and their contact details.”

However, the rules would not affect indoor-dwelling birds like parrots or budgies.

The chief veterinary officers from England, Scotland, and Wales said in a statement:

“These proposals will enable us to have a full picture of the number and location of birds kept across Great Britain and make it easier to track and manage the spread of avian disease.”

“This information will also help inform future risk assessments and maintain our commitment to continue building our extensive avian influenza research portfolio,” the statement added.

As the Guardian reports, Officials said a new register system could help owners, as by alerting the Animal and Plant Health Agency about their flocks, they would receive important updates such as any local avian influenza outbreaks and information on biosecurity rules to help protect their flocks from the threat of avian influenza.

More from the UK government:

By registering their birds with the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA), keepers will ensure they receive important updates such as any local avian influenza outbreaks and information on biosecurity rules to help protect their flocks from the threat of avian influenza.

This will enable the government to communicate with bird keepers quickly, to manage potential disease outbreaks, such as avian influenza, and limit the spread.

The new rules would cover owners of backyard flocks, birds of prey, and pigeon fanciers, but would not affect pet birds kept entirely inside a domestic dwelling, such as a parrot or budgie kept in a cage indoors which never leaves the property other than to visit a vet or another short-term period.

The Brits will comply to their own chagrin when the government next declares a tax on chicken ownership, full vaccination of owner and chickens alike and a limit on the number of chickens one can own.
When the government wants the people to register something it is only because they want to control it.

Just like the gun controllers. They would love to make all US Citizens to register their firearms which would lead to their biggest wet dream of all….total confiscation.
