I am in western Canada and was possibly looking for hatching eggs, depending on what is available to me. My wife really likes the heritage ones.

Gidday: Here's my favorite links on Canadian sites as well as info on importing from the states.

How to import from states:
I phoned Canada Customs (or whatever their official name is) and here's the rules for importing eggs and birds from the USA: Any importing requires a Federally approved Vet's Health certificate (form VS17-6) for eggs, chicks, or adults; form must include NPIP number on it (US National Poultry Improvement Plan); adult birds must bear a leg band noting age, sex, and breed. Not to mention a federal license for migratory waterfowl (Canada geese, etc.) or a provincial license for game birds (ringneck pheasants, bobwhite quail, wild turkeys, ruffed grouse, etc). The federal license is a BIG deal. The province of Ontario is not a big deal (license is $10 last time I had one) and Quebec no license exists and you can probably get away with not having one. Guelph vet responsible for imported birds Dr Susan Rey 519-826-2810 (all this info is accurate as of December 2008) As of endangered species, I have not looked for into on this.
If you bring over eggs for the purpose of eating them, no paperwork is required (you might have fun at the border).

Thanks for the links, I will check them out.

We have already ordered chicks from Rochester Hatchery, and I have also spoken to Performance Poultry, but they are not selling hatching eggs this year.
