Hi, I'm trying to start a tiny business this spring, by selling baby chicks to the public. Now I'm only planning on hatching 40 at a time 2 times during the spring. Does anyone know if there are any legal restrictions to sell baby chicks to the public? Do you have to have a lisence? I'm just trying to learn anything I can so any extra information you may have id love to hear it!

Thank you. smile.png

I would assume different localities could have different rules and regulations.  Have you checked with your local municipality?  They should be able to advise you.

It really depends on your location. Where I live we don't register flocks or get permits or have to do anything extra selling birds in state. Unless at a swap or fair then must be checked by vet prior and there is almost always a state vet at those events prior to check in. To sell out of state we need NPIP certification and in reality that's something that will be required in next few years to decade for fairs and swaps.

No I haven't checked yet, I assume it's ok, But I'm not sure yet. Oh I forgot to tell in my original post that I live in California, and it's perfectly legal to have chickens where I live. I'm just trying to do some research and learn any additional info that you guys might have.

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.

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.
