You have a legal responsibility to care for animals under your control. This code outlines the basic requirements for persons responsible for the welfare and husbandry of poultry. It provides guidance for managers and others on a range of requirements for food and water, shelters and accommodation, management practices, equipment, ventilation, transportation, etc.
By complying with this code of practice you may be able to demonstrate that you have met your legal responsibilities (in relation to the farming of poultry). It may be a defence to a charge of animal cruelty that you have complied with this code of practice.
Please contact the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
