    I need to be NPIP certified to take my birds to the fair. I need to have my birds tested and am not certified to do it. I will have to find someone near me. Is anyone here NPIP certified? I really just need to know what all it contains, i am kinda confused of what i need to do.

    Contact your extension agent. They come to your place and test all the adult birds the first time. Then every year they do just a few. It's free and you don't have to be tested at shows/fairs.
