Chapter 507-2 HATCHERIES AND DEALERS
When more than one hatchery in Georgia is operated by a hatchery member, or more than one store or establishment in Georgia is operated by a dealer member, each such location shall be subject to a separate agreement. However, retail stores operated under the same ownership as a member hatchery, shall be considered normal hatchery outlets and shall not be subject to separate agreements.
Hatchery and dealer membership dues and fees for the current season, or other accounts with the Association, shall be paid within 30 days from June 30th each year or the membership agreement shall be automatically terminated. Agreements which lapse for non-payment of such fees or accounts shall not be renewed or revived during the current season.

|(2)||A combined fee for both a chicken and turkey hatchery under the same ownership shall be based upon the combined total capacity, plus $1.00.|
|(3)||The fee for a dealer participation shall be $8.00.|
