    Maryland Poultry Registration Laws

    So we wont show our chickens, we dont give the eggs to stores but what if we:

    1. Give the eggs to our friends/family?
    do we we have to get registered?

    2. Sell the Eggs on our property, have a little "shack" on the side of the road or something like that and sell the eggs.
    Do we have to get registered?

    This is the state level component of NAIS and yes, they are saying that if you own chickens, regardless of what you do or dont do with them, you are required to register your premises. I'm sorry about that. It's just an unconstitutional way to control the food supply, IMO.

    I thought I read today that a cease and desist order was given to the government about NAIS as information from the Dept of AG census reports was being leaked to the NAIS Dept even though it was supposed to be confidential.

    Along with the fact that it was turning out to not be "voluntary" and the impact studies and implementation plans were never done.

    I got something like that a few days ago in the mail. I got a form to fill out from the county wanting to know what our farm is used for, do we farm our land, do we have a hay business and # of farm animals and stuff like that. Now I got a poultry registration form. It asked how many, what they are used for, plans for diposal if one dies. I am not sure what it is for or why they need that info.
