New York Agriculture & Markets Law
Application for Permit; Fee
Any person who desires to offer baby chicks for sale at public auction or community sale shall apply for a permit to do so prior to the date of the proposed sale to the department of agriculture and markets on a form which shall be prescribed and furnished by such department. The application shall be signed by the person who proposes to conduct such sale. The application shall designate the date of the proposed sale, the number and the breed of the baby chicks which are to be offered for sale, and the person by whom they were produced, and shall be accompanied by a fee in the sum of ten dollars for each and every day or fraction thereof during or on which it is proposed to sell baby chicks. The department of agriculture and markets is hereby authorized in its discretion to grant or deny the permit requested in such application. If the department deems advisable, it may require the applicant, as a condition precedent to the granting of such permit, to submit a certificate in such form as the department may prescribe, certifying that the baby chicks which are to be offered for sale are in a healthy condition and free from any such disease as the department may designate.
