    Hello! I would like to post some fertile eggs from USA to a breeder in UK. Is it legal to do this? Would they get through Customs OK? If it is, do you have any tips on keeping them safe. Many thanks!

    I think it's legal but you would probably have to go through quite a few hoops as well as the possibility of the hatch rate being compromised due to such a long shipping process.

    I would advise you NOT to do it even it is very tempting but you can get into trouble with the law, getting your eggs confisicated and no importation papers with it.

    I do not know how many people have done it without the xrays and all that jazz and expecting an excellent hatch.

    You will have to get your birds tested, then with proper paperwork, and passing all legal red tapes, it can be done.

    OK thanks for your replies, sounds like it's too risky to do it - thanks for taking time to reply. [​IMG]
