I'm just trying to learn anything I can so any extra information you may have id love to hear it!
How about this: Don't say anything to anyone. It's much easier and less costly to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.
You're only talking maybe 80 chicks a year, you're in CA, they'll probably make you jump through more hoops and expenses than it will be worth.
Hatch them, and put them on CL, and disappear.
