If you keep a flock of 50 or more birds regardless if they are mixed or single species, you should register them with the GB Poultry Register by telephone, post or online.
Holdings with less than 50 birds are still encouraged to register as the registration enables them to get assistance during any potential disease outbreak.
If you have more than 250 Birds you are required to keep population / depopulation records
For more information please follow this link to the AHVLA website on Poultry Registration.
If you have less than 50 birds you can sell unstamped and ungraded eggs only directly to the consumer for their own use either at the production site, through door-to-door sale or at local markets.
If you choose to sell your ungraded eggs at local markets make sure that your eggs show your name and address, a best before date (max 28 days from lay) and advice to keep eggs chilled.
If you have 50 or more birds you need to be registered with Egg Marketing Institute (EMI) and stamp the eggs with your producer code.
