    Quote:I belive it means he is National Poultry Impovement Plan member. I belive your birds have to pass health test to be certified and to remain NPIP any future stock you add has to come from an npip member or be quarantined for an X amount of time, I think.

    I would like to know if when a breeder claims to NPIP certified does this mean that he may ship to Canada? I thought so but breeders are still not wanting to ship so now I am confused.

    NPIP is National Poultry Improvement Plan. What RonnieAtkeson said pretty much explains it.

    Quote:No this does not mean we can ship to Canada, sorry.
