Welcome to NCFarmID Small Flock Registration
Backyard poultry farmers must register with the state program only to aid in the state's preparation for a possible highly pathogenic avian influenza outbreak.
Information gathered through registration will be used solely for animal health purposes and is confidential pursuant to N.C. General Statute §106-24.1. This critical data will provide animal health officials with necessary contact information in case of an animal health concern and help identify animals and premises that may have been affected.
If your flock is in the National Poultry Improvement Plan, you do not need to register again.
