    I was thinking of buying hatching eggs and as I have a large flock I don't want to bring in any diseases. I was wondering If theres a risk of bringing in a disease.

    Pretty much I want to buy ee eggs from someone that hasnt' been npip tested yet but is going to in the future as soon as they come to test. I was wondering if I should wait till the testing is over or just buy them now if theres a very low risk of getting anything.
