I hope this isn't a really dumb question that has been answered many times and I just haven't seen it! I have this idea in my head to maybe try to make up a little feed money by selling point of lay pullets down the road, but this NPIP stuff is really confusing and intimidating to me. It was my understanding that if you wanted to actually breed and ship/sell lots of poultry that NPIP was a good thing to do... but what if someone just wants to buy from NPIP hatcheries, raise the chicks to early aduthood, and then sell them? Am I breaking laws by not being NPIP approved myself? It just seems sort of crazy to have to get every bird on my property certified to be able to sell a few chickens a year I didn't even breed, so I'm hoping not. It's free in my state (Missouri) but it just seems like an inconvenience more than anything for something so minor. I don't have to have permits to sell dogs, cats, horses, cows, goats... you get the idea lol.
