Poultry species DO NOT have to be individually identified. But, if the birds do have identification such as a band, then the identification needs to be noted in the poultry movement records.

Record Keeping Requirements

Bird owners are required to maintain records of flock additions and removals for 3 years. This requirement is part of Indiana's Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) rule, but was adopted in the wake of the 2015 highly pathogenic avian flu event that impacted more than 200 farms with 48 million birds.

Records must include: names and addresses of buyer and seller, sale date, breed, sex, number of animals and reason for movement.
