    --------------------

    Maine State Law:

    MAINE RULES AND REGS ON SALES OF LIVESTOCK, POULTRY, WATERFOWL, MILK, CHEESE

    http://www.maine.gov/agriculture/ahi/ahisr.html

    5A. SCRAPIE TAGS FOR SHEEP AND GOATS ONLY TO APPLY FOR INTRASTATE MOVEMENT. VENDORS COMING FROM OTHER STATES TO SELL SHEEP OR GOATS NEED TO HAVE SCRAPIE TAGS OR INDENTS.

    5B. birds do not need to be in the NPIP Program. Its great if your birds are Typhoid & Pollorum tested to keep these diseases out of US.

    The only time you need to have tested birds is at a fair/show.

    The only stipulations are that at public events in Maine you have to sell any birds under 8 weeks old in lots of 6, above the 8 weeks, they can go one at a time. Now, from your house or farm you can sell singular birds of any age.

    You must purchase 6 from the one family the chicks are raised in, not 1 bird here, 1 bird there. (I believe its the pecking order and younger chicks could be harmed)

    NO PROCESSING OR NEUTERING OF ANIMALS

    Mammals must be completely weaned and minimum of 8 weeks old.



    RULES FOR OUT OF STATE VENDORS


    http://www.maine.gov/sos/cec/rules/01/001/001c206.doc

    VENDORS DO NOT NEED A VENDORS LICENSE UNLESS THE VENDOR BUYS LIVESTOCK, POULTRY OR WATERFOWL TO RE-SELL

    Certificate of Veterinary Inspection: A legible certificate signed by an accredited veterinarian and approved by the chief livestock official of the state or country of origin stating that the animals are free from signs of contagious, infectious and communicable diseases and containing the following:

    1. An official identification number, or identification satisfactory to the commissioner, for each animal

    2. Age, sex and breed of each animal

    3. The results of any qualifying test

    4. The exact address of consignor (sender) and consignee (receiver).

    5. The expected date of entry

    NH & out of state residents should have a copy of their NPIP form to show that the flocks of origin for their birds were NPIP certified.

    Good Idea I'll see what I can do. I've also posted on the NH Craigslist for the swap.

    With any luck I'll be bringing some Black Australorp chick and a couple of goats. I've got 10 already hatched out and set the incubator with another 42 eggs which should hatch prior to the swap.

    I wish I could get to this one. I'll even be in Maine, but I have to pick up my trees from FEDCO in Clinton that day.

    A couple of apple trees and elderberry bushes. Then we need to plant them here in China.

    I may be able to get to some of the summer ones though. Our schedule is a lot more flexible then when the kids are out of school. Not to mention some of the chicks I'm hatching now will have grown out and I can tell which should stay and which ones can go.
