I'm debating with myself on whether or not to get certified. I wouldn't need it for local stuff, and my closest neighbor Idaho doesn't require it for eggs. But it would be nice if I end up with being successful on my project birds. Right now I technically have more chickens than I'm zoned for. And an illegal rooster..... but my neighbors told me that they don't mind.
Do you have to be NPIP to ship out of Texas?
I believe you have to be npip to ship anywhere. All states are different but I believe npip is the minimum.
