Looking for Blue Laced Red and/or Black Wyandotte chicks r hatching eggs
Wish I could help you. I'm also in Canada and wondering if there is anyone out there who knows where I can find bantam orpingtons in Canada!!!! I've been looking everywhere! Someone said they used to see them in BC, but I've had no luck. Anyone????
I have some banty buffs that are trying to lay but Im in Ky, I would be willing to try to ship when we get eggs.
That would be great. I really want bantam buff orpingtons, but I thought it was impossible to ship to Canada? Or, maybe not impossible, but really difficult, with a lot of paperwork, or something. Maybe you could check it out! Thanks for offering. Sure would be great, if we could get it to work out.
The following steps outline my own personal experience (David Stuart, Glencoe, ON
Show Secretary) in a time frame from March 2005 to as recently as March 7, 2006,
executing five imports into Canada of poultry originating from four different states:
1/ Locate a "USDA poultry accredited" veterinarian licensed in the state where the
poultry resides. Of course this private practice vet will charge you a fee for the inspection
2/ The vet has to visit your farm and inspect the premises and the actual poultry intended
for export to Canada. The inspection must take place within 30 days of import.
Before the vet leaves your site they will need the legband numbers and legband colors
you intend to place on the export birds. There are also certain tests your farm has to pass,
if you have not already done so as a matter of your flock health routine, and these are
noted in your border crossing letter later in these instructions. The vet that does your
inspection will no doubt be able to advise you what tests are required.
3/ The inspecting vet then has to send paperwork - USDA Form #VS 17-6 - to the state
USDA office for a counter signature. At some point you will receive your certificate from
the inspecting vet. The form lists the bird breeds by count and the legbands they should
be wearing at import.
4/ Print a copy or copy and paste the following letter and have it available with your
USDA Form #VS 17-6 at the point of import. NOTE: YOUR POULTRY INTENDED
FOR IMPORT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE INSPECTED BY A CANADIAN
GOVERNMENT VETERINARIAN AND THEREFORE YOU DO NOT HAVE TO
MAKE ANY APPOINTMENT FOR INSPECTION AT THE BORDER
The chickens will need to be accompanied by a federal export certificate that is called
"Certificate for Poultry or Hatching Eggs for Export" (USDA form #VS 17-6). I
have attached the import requirements from our automated import reference system
Approved (must be accompanied by the following

From eMail to them
Good morning Peter,
I hope your day is well. I have been asked to respond to your inquiry:
I was requiring in simple english how to go about importing chicken
hatching eggs from the US and what necessary forms and fees there are
You require an USDA Official Zoosanitary Export Certificate for Poultry, form VS 17-6, issued by a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) veterinarian, or issued by a veterinarian and endorsed by a USDA veterinarian. The hatching eggs are inspected at the border by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). Please confirm the fees charged with the respective agencies and/or exporting hatcheries. The information needed on the VS 17-6 can be found in the Import Reference Document (IRD) found on our external website, Sections 3 (1) and 12 (1)-(3):
3. GENERAL IMPORT REQUIREMENTS - US ANIMALS - OTHER THAN RUMINANTS
(1) An equine, swine, poultry, hatching egg, bear or non-domestic feline may be imported into Canada from the United States if the animal is accompanied by a certificate of an official veterinarian of the United States or a certificate of a veterinarian endorsed by an official veterinarian of the United States that clearly identifies the animal and states that:
(a) the animal was inspected by a veterinarian within 30 days preceding the date of importation;
(b) the animal was found by a veterinarian to be free from any communicable disease;
(c) the animal was, to the best of the knowledge and belief of a veterinarian, not exposed to any communicable disease within 60 days preceding the date of the inspection;
(d) the applicable conditions set out in the Regulations and in this Document respecting the importation of that species of animal have been satisfied; and
(e) the animal meets the conditions shown on the certificate.
12. HATCHING EGGS
(1) Hatching eggs may be imported into Canada from the United States if, in addition to the certification required under subsection 3(1), the certificate required under subsection 3(1) states that to the best of the knowledge and belief of a veterinarian, the flock from which the eggs originated is free from communicable disease and has not been exposed to avian pneumoencephalitis (Newcastle Disease), fowl typhoid (Salmonella gallinarum), fowl plague (Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza), pullorum disease (Salmonella pullorum) or ornithosis (Chlamydiosis, Psittacosis).
(2) Hatching eggs may be imported into Canada from the United States if:
(a) the hatching eggs are in new, clean containers, or in used containers that have been cleaned and disinfected for the purpose of preventing the introduction of diseases;
(b) the shells of the hatching eggs are free from egg yolk, manure, soil or other foreign matter; and
(c) the identification of the flock of origin of the hatching eggs is legible and clearly visible on the exterior of each container of hatching eggs.
(3) Hatching eggs of a chicken, turkey or game bird may be imported into Canada from the United States if the certificate required under subsection 3(1) states that:
(a) the flock of origin from which the eggs originated is free of pullorum disease (Salmonella pullorum) and fowl typhoid (Salmonella gallinarum) under the United States Department of Agriculture National Poultry Improvement Plan; or
(b) serological tests have been conducted on all poultry in the flock of origin from which the eggs originated within 12 months preceding importation and such tests proved negative for pullorum disease (Salmonella pullorum) and fowl typhoid (Salmonella gallinarum); and
(c) the eggs originated from poultry resident in the flock of origin which existed at the time of the tests of the flock referred to in paragraph (b) or from poultry that were natural increases of that flock or additions which originated from a flock serologically negative to a test for pullorum disease (Salmonella pullorum) and fowl typhoid (Salmonella gallinarum) within 12 months prior to entry to the flock of origin.
I trust this answers your question. Have a wonderful week.
