The New Hampshire Department of Agriculture is currently changing rules for any and all chicken swaps held in New Hampshire.
The new rules are posted on the vendor information page of chickenswapsofnh.com
The vendor page will be updated as necessary. rules change. check back once in a while.
one rule that changed in the last few days affects people who want to sell chickens at swaps.
ALL EGGS-CHICKS-AND CHICKENS NEED TO COME FROM NPIPS TESTED FLOCKS.
chickens 5 months and older need to be banded
This new department of agriculture rule means that all vendors will need to bring a photocopy of their npip card with them to every swap. It needs to be on display at your spot.
Aren't you a little concerned about cross contamination? Chicken poop & fresh veggies?
No, livestock will be set up on one side of the parking lot away from the produce/food. Did you know that human feces found on the hands of many young children, carries far more bacteria than chicken poop. My advice to you is, wash your veggies before you eat them. I for one am looking forward to the Milford Chicken Swap/ Farmer's Market, it should be good clean fun!
