Register with DEFRA?

Recommended Posts

With avian flu appearing again, I’m wondering if there are any advantages to registering voluntarily with DEFRA. Or any definite disadvantages. Looking at old posts, it seems like a lot of people (not everyone) have been quite wary of registering - but these are posts from maybe 15 years ago. What are people’s views these days?

I am registered. You get up to date messages about current restrictions and cases of AI.

I must admit, I did worry that if there was an outbreak nearby DEFRA would know exactly where my flock is and there would be no hiding them if a cull order was in place. Would I try to hide them anyway? I’d want to even though I know it would be the wrong thing to do but probably wouldn’t be able to anyway because all my neighbours know they’re here.
