'Poultry' in the Animal Health Act 1981 means domestic fowls, turkeys, geese, ducks, guinea-fowls, pigeons, pheasants and partridges1, but the appropriate authority2 may by order extend the definition3 to include, for any purpose of the Animal Health Act 1981, any other species of bird, or restrict it to exclude pheasants or partridges4.
In the application of the Act to poultry, 'disease' means fowl pest in any of its forms (including Newcastle disease and fowl plague), fowl cholera, infectious bronchitis, infectious laryngotracheitis, pullorum disease, fowl typhoid, fowl pox and fowl paralysis
