* Dealers are exempt from licensure if all transactions are occurring solely at the physical/911 premise where birds/eggs reside or under the supervision of an auction licensed by the NCDA&CS Veterinary Division. Licensure exemption does not exempt dealers from other legal requirements outlined on Page 2 of the associated registration form.
