    Yes you CAN import eggs however you must go thru all the red tapes, government requirements and vet papers. The chances of getting a chick or two out of a doz really might be the possibiilty or none hatch at all. There has been people that tried to import eggs and got very little or none viable chicks.

    Best bet is to import birds from the UK even it may be in the thousands of dollars for all the legal ways and quarantine fees and laws.

    Good luck!
