What type of tests/health certificates will I have to get in order to show my birds? And would it just be for the show chickens or would I have to get all the chickens on my property checked out?
Quote:Depends on the show. They have different requirements.
Quote:In Ohio you only have to Pullorum test the birds going to the (Ohio) show unless stated otherwise.
If you plan to do a lot of showing you may want to get NPIP tested. If you want to ship eggs/birds then you need to be NPIP test.
Where can I get these tests done?
