It has been in place for a long time.

Apparently there are certain shipping routes that sometimes carry dry ice which is dangerous for animals closely confined near it. It depends on where the chicks originate from. Some hatcheries don't have the same embargo because they aren't located in the same region from which dry ice shipments originate.

 

Here is a quote from Greenfire.

 

Zip Code Embargoes. The USPS has issued a list of embargoed zip codes for the shipment of live chicks. All zip codes that begin with the following numbers are designated dry ice routes and are not suitable for the shipment of live animals from our region. Though you may have received chicks at these zip codes from other hatcheries, please keep in mind that these hatcheries are located in different regions that do not share the same restrictions. If you place an order for a shipment to one of the following zip codes, we will have to cancel the order and your payment will be refunded in full.

044 046 047 148 149 307 356 357 358 373 374 496
544 545 548 556 557 558 564 566 590 591 592 593
596 597 598 599 620 622 623 624 628 629 629 631
632 633 634 636 637 638 639 648 650 651 651 563
654 656 657 658 716 717 718 719 720 721 721 725
726 727 728 729  

 

 

It has more to do with the origin zip than the destination but a combination of both.

Hope this explains it for all.

 

For the OP, you'll have to select a hatchery/breeder located in another part of the country from which to purchase.
