    oops I just noticed it's for the wrong state.
    Just google NPIP, "National Poultry Improvement Program", since it is a national program, it shouldn't be too different between states.
    You will have to adhere to the guidelines set forth.
    Closed flock, record keeping as to where eggs or birds came in or out, they must also be from NPIP flocks.
    Cleanliness, some states also require other testing, such as Avian Influenza, along with the Pullorum tests.
    They will come and inspect your farm on a regular basis. In the house as well as out.
    Where you incubate and brood chicks. Where you store your feed.

    Try this link, you will have to click again onto it.
    Good luck!
