    I am trying to find out if I have to get the NPIP for TN. I have 10 RIR Hens & 1 Roo I mostly use there eggs for food BUT I have sold a Dz of eggs here & there for hatching. I also have 2 small flocks of silkies ( 1 flock of 8 they just started laying & another flock of Chicks ) I am allowing the older flock to hatch out there own eggs right now ( 14 eggs ) My plans in the spring is to sell hatching eggs from them & maybe some chicks and or extra roos from the chicks. With all that being said I think I have to get NPIP testing, so who or were do I go to get it? I tryed google and I can not find anything for TN aside from sellers saying they are NPIP???
    Thank You ahead of time for any info on what I should do.

    NPIP is a voluntary program. You can call your state Agricultural department and talk with the poultry specialist and they can fill you in on all the information.
