DEFRA registration
« on: December 09, 2016, 09:41 »
I have 8 chooks and have never got round to registering. Didn't really feel the need to be honest.
However in view of recent developments I've just had a look at the registration form.  ???
Good heavens!  is it really worth the hassle?
Even if the voices aren't real,
They have some really good ideas!!!

It is only voluntary if you have less than 50 birds, so I never have.  Its mainly so they can email you alerts, but news travels so fast these days and is so accessible, I don't feel the need.

Yes, that's my feeling too. Especially now I've glanced at the form! :tongue2:

IMO there needs to be a separate form for people who only have a small handful of birds. The present form is unsuitable for those who just keep a few birds as pets.

I dream of a better world where Chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.

I'm not sure I understand that view to be honest.  There are lots of us on here who do keep a few birds and all are welcome to participate.

I meant form, the discussion is about DEFRA registration. I was talking of the DEFRA registration form.

Sorry, Manx, I think my post crossed with yours.  I understand what you meant, now.

Oh thank goodness! I thought I'd offended you by being flippant about DEFRA!   :)
Totally agree, the form I looked at was very off putting for some one like me.

You can just register for alerts and that is much easier.  See Flowerpower's post here  :)
