Thread Starter 

I thought this would be some good information to put out as I recently received nasty letters from some of the States listed that require additional permits.

If you ship eggs to the following States and are not NPIP certified and do not send a VS 9-3 form, then you are breaking laws:

Alabama
Arizona
Arkansas
California
Colorado
Connecticut
Delaware
Florida
Georgia*
Idaho
Illinois - ??
Indiana
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
Maine
Maryland
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minnesota*
Mississippi
Missouri*
Montana
Nebraska*
Nevada
New Hampshire* ^
New Mexico
North Carolina
North Dakota
Ohio
Oklahoma
Pennsylvania
South Carolina
South Dakota*
Tennessee
Texas - AI clean +
Utah - permit each shipmnt, and MG, MS, MM & AI clean
Vermont
Virgina* MG AI clean
Washington
West Virginia - ?? AI clean
Wisconsin

* yearly entry permit required in addition to VS 9-3
^ CVI on birds over 20 weeks
?? waiting for further information

Never heard of such a thing and you think the Post Office would inform you that it is needed.

I'm confused.  Why did they send YOU a nasty letter since you ARE NPIP certified?  Do they just send it to everyone?

Thanks for letting everyone know.  What kind of nasty things did they say?

how did "they" know to send you a letter?

Where does that form come from?

North Carolina also requires that NC sellers have a Hatching Egg Dealer license to sell eggs for hatching.

I agree with Country Bum.  Why wouldn't the PO have this list and inform you of that when you ship?  Is there a fine involved if you are caught?  Thank you for the tip.

Let me guess...I will bet there is a fee to get the permits. Always trying to get money for everything.

Yup. Of course! The NC Hatching Egg permit is only $10 a year.

Yes, I am NPIP certified, but on top of that some states require an additional entry permit.

I have applied for a permit with MO, MN, and GA so far.  These States have no charge for their permit.

The Post Office does not "police" agricultural products, nor do they have the manpower.

I received letters because they got their copy of my NPIP form.  The State of WA finally decided to send out my forms from the past couple of years.......

I got letters telling me I was shipping eggs/chicks/birds into their State illegally and to either get a permit or cease and desist.  Virginia threatened me with misdemeanor charges, so no more shipments there.
