Minnesota State Poultry Testing Regulations


The MN Board of Animal Health requires all poultry, game birds, and turkeys to have the appropriate blood testing done. Birds must have a numbered wing or leg band. The MPTL "Minnesota Poultry Testing Laboratory" has a list of people who are authorized testing agents. Please contact one of these agents before the show or swap to get your birds done. Their number is (320) 231-5170. The Board of Animal Health may have a representative at all of the swaps and shows checking blood test papers.

Required tests include Salmonella pullorum-typhoid. In addition, turkeys must be tested and negative for Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) and Mycoplasma synoviae (MS) prior to sale. The owner must receive and have the official test chart/report from the MPTL "Minnesota Poultry Testing Laboratory" to verify results prior to the show or sale. The MN Board of Animal Health does not require testing for Avian Influenza (AI) at this time.
