    In a couple of months I'd like to buy eggs for hatching and they'll need to be shipped into New York (State not City). I had read somewhere that unless documentation showing proof of US Pullorum Typhoid Clean or equivalent, it can't be done. Does that includes all individuals and ebayers? Does anyone know? Thanks.

    Thank you for your post. I did call them today and found out that shipping hatching eggs aren't innoculation enforced unless there is an outbreak. She did encourage me to buy them from a hatchery over eBay or craigslist. Sue
