    Don't you need a NPIP license? I don't know for sure, though. [​IMG]

    Looks like there are quota restrictions on broiler hatching eggs, but I ahve not found anything for other hatching purposes:

    I don't see other hatching egg listed.

    You might want to send email to the contact listed for broiler hatching eggs in teh document in the first URL and ask for assistance if you are planning to import eggs that are not broiler/meat breeds.

    You might need an export permit from the USDA, and you need an import permit from the Candadian Food Inspection Agency:
