(c)domestic fowls, turkeys, geese, ducks, guinea fowls, quails, pigeons, pheasants, partridges and ratites, if they are reared or kept in captivity for breeding, the production of meat or eggs for consumption, or for restocking supplies of game.

(2) Where a means of transport has been used to transport any animal to which this article applies or anything which may give rise to the transmission of a disease affecting animals, the user of the means of transport shall, as soon as reasonably practicable and not more than 24 hours after the journey is completed, ensure that it is cleansed and disinfected in accordance with Schedule 1, or, where appropriate, destroyed.

(3) No person shall use, or cause or permit the use of, any means of transport to transport any animal to which this article applies, unless it has been cleansed and disinfected in accordance with Schedule 1 since it was last used to transport any animal or anything which may give rise to the transmission of a disease affecting animals.

(4) Without prejudice to the provisions of paragraphs (2) and (3) above, if a means of transport has become soiled so as to give rise to a risk of transmission of a disease affecting animals since being cleansed and disinfected in accordance with paragraphs (2) and (3) above, the transporter shall cleanse and disinfect it in accordance with paragraphs (3) and (4) of Schedule 1 before loading animals to which this article applies into the means of transport.
