    I would like to buy 25 pulets sent to my Ft Lauderdale mail forwarder to be imported here to the Bahamas.
    I would like a dual purpose high frequency large brown egg layer breed like the New Hampshire Red or a Rhode Island that can handle heat well.
    I MUST have a Certificate of Health emailed to me prior to sending the chicks as I must obtain an import license from the ministry of Agriculture here.
    Please PM me with offers or suggestions.
    Thank you very much in advance.

    you probably will not get any taker's, a cert. of health can be $85, and shipping will be to long for the chicks, your looking at a 7-10 day ship by doing it that way

    Quote:If you do a search, it does say they are in the US, but, under a different Username? Different names and genders for real names though, too.

    Phoenix?
    No I am in Nassau, Bahamas. So the supplier needs to ship to FL.
    I will pay for the HC and shipping.
    Can PayPal.

    I said I need them delivered to my mail forwarder in Ft Lauderdale who will then bring them in. I need a Certificate of Health prior to receiving them in FL so I can rush to the Ministry of Agriculture in Nassau and obtain an importation permit which my mail forwarder must have in order to clear customs here.

    I'm with Buck Creek on this one....I dont think the chicks will survive long enough to get them to Nassau. Can you incubate hatching eggs there?? Might be a better solution

    Same here, no way would they survive that long in transit.

    There were people who imported them in large numbers last summer.
    Some regulation changed (maybe duty) so they stopped doing so.
    As long as they are fine at the time of delivery to FL they would be here about 4 hours after that.
