NO CURRENT EVENTS
There are no current events planned due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and a ban on gatherings due to Avian Influenza outbreaks across the country. We hope that we will be able to get back to our events again soon.
Due to an increase in the number of Avian Influenza cases across the UK, England is now under a prevention zone. As of the 14th December 2020 it is a legal requirement that all birds must be kept indoors, regardless of the number you keep. This is still an ongoing situation. Please see the DEFRA page for more information.
Declaration forms are mandatory at all poultry shows. There has been some discussion as to if they are needed. Kent Poultry Club will require declaration forms at all its shows in order to comply with the licence that we must apply for in order to hold shows. It is no longer required to declare your birds Newcastle Disease free but you must declare your birds Avian Influenza free. Declaration forms must be presented as your birds are inspected on the day of the show and will NOT be accepted with entries. Below is a copy of the latest Declaration Form that requires you to declare your birds Avian Influenza free. Please make sure your Declaration Form is no older than August 2018 as anything older will not be accepted.
Pleas make yourself aware of the latest Avian Influenza & Newcastle Disease regulations which you can find on the DEFRA Advice page or on the DEFRA website.
