Can Anyone do this?

If you have a huge amount of money, lots of time and want to deal with all sorts of red tape and coordination on both sides of the ocean it can likely be done legally in some cases...

But, for all practical purposes it's not something the average person is going to be able to do legally...

And for all that work, your eggs probably wouldn't hatch well anyway because of the way packages are handled (if they hatched at all). If you can afford to consider importing eggs, you'd be better off to spend a few extra bucks and import chicks, in my opinion, anyway smile.png

Importing adults is generally how it's done as they are better suited to the stress and hardships of the process, in addition to shipping times, there are long quarantine times that you have to foot the bill for and I doubt many (if any) quarantine centers are setup for chicks...

BTW you are talking $1000s per bird when it's all said and done, and the risk of loosing them to diseases they they are not accustomed to is huge... Not saying it can't be done, as it is done, but it's a costly game of high risk...
