    Is there any specific permit or anything that I gotta have to sell hatching eggs??? Or is it just depending on what state/area I'm in???? Anyone??? Thanks!!!!

    No license / permit necessary (that *I'm* aware of).

    I don't know about where you are, but here in Texas there are regulations you have to go by.

    You have to have a Pullorum/Typhoid test that is clean.

    maybe where you live, check with your county or state extention office.

    but here in alabama theres no regulations.

    you can check on this list of state regulations. scroll past the cattle etc and it will give you a section on poultry & hatching egg requirements.

    Yes-send me the $25 fee and I'll take care of it for you.[​IMG]
    Just kidding-you may need to be NPIP certified to ship into some states though.

    Like previous posters have suggested, I would check with your individual state--here in MD, I have to have a "permit to sell hatching eggs, poultry and/or operate a hatchery"

    I have the above, plus I am an NPIP participant (pullorum-free status) and will be participating in an AI testing program. My local ag office does it all for free. The hardest part is catching my nasty roosters. Last time I made the tester do it--he was such a good sport! [​IMG]
