4:11-45. Weight tickets for crates being transported; tags on crates; removal of poultry in transit
Where crates or other containers containing live poultry as originally purchased by the buyer are transferred from one vehicle to another for the purpose of transportation, the weight ticket covering each crate or container so transferred shall accompany the same; each crate or container shall be marked by means of a tag firmly fixed or attached thereto with the name and address of the person from whom the poultry in such crate or container was bought.
It shall be unlawful for any dealer, broker or agent of such dealer or broker to transfer or cause the transfer of poultry from one crate or container to another before returning to a warehouse, established place of business or distribution point; provided, however, if part of the live poultry is sold before returning to any of the said locations it shall be lawful if at the time of sale, a sales slip or ticket is made out, in duplicate, showing his name and address, the name and address of the person to whom the poultry is sold, the number of units of poultry and the avoirdupois net weight of the same, together with identification of the crate or container from which the poultry was taken. The original copy of the sales ticket shall be given to the person buying the said poultry and the duplicate copy shall be retained by the seller for a period of one year and shall be subject at all times to inspection by a duly authorized weights and measures officer.
