Transporting chicks to another state.... Might hit a sore spot

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I vend a few semi local reptile shows.  One of the ones I vend in is in PA.

And here is where people might get mad. Please do not comment nor read further if you have a problem with chicks being used as feeders.



My incubator will be arrive today. I plan to hatch a couple hatches out of it to restock my flock.  I also plan to schedule a hatch so I have a fresh batch of chicks to take to the reptile shows with me to sell as feeders.

What if anything do I need to do about transporting them into a different state? Testing? Etc?

The rules for transporting livestock across state lines vary from one state to another. I'm not certain about birds, but I had to have a veterinarian issue me a health certificate to move goats. It was pretty cheap and not a big deal. You can get the exact laws by calling the state veterinarian for the state you are going to. You should be able to find the phone number by internet search.

Currently chicken-less, hoping to get a fresh start soon.
My wish-list: Old English Game Bantams, American Game, D'uccles, Japanese Bantams, Bantam Cornish, Large Fowl Cornish, Lakenvelders, Welsummers, Kraienkoppen, Andalusians, Speckled Sussex, Cubalaya, Sumatra, Easter Egger (large and bantam), Orpingtons, Iowa Blue, Marans...I think I'm going to need a lot of pens!

I talked to a gentleman here in Georgia that was moving to Missouri. He told me for all had to do and the penality, or whatever the fee was called he was going to have to pay, he was getting rid of his chickens and starting a new flock after he gets settled in. The cost was so much more than the worth of the chickens.sad

Hatcheries ship their chicks all over the country so perhaps if you contact a hatchery they could point out permits you might need hugslovelovelove

You need to contact the state veterinarian for the state you are traveling to.  Testing requirements vary by state.

I Think that it's o.k. to take chickens into Pa, until they are 6 months old, then they have requirements.
