    How long did it take until you got your certificate? It will be 4 weeks tomorrow since I was tested. I got the farm inspection report in the mail about 1.5-2 weeks after I was tested, but still no certificate.

    Mine came the next week. My tester said the certificate really is not worth anything. He said the only papers that can be used are the pink and yellow slips he gave me for each breed the day he tested me. The only thing I needed from my certificate was my number. I hope it comes soon!

    Quote:See, I asked the tester if I needed some of those slips and they told me no NY doesnt have those, just send a copy of your certificate.

    To get certified to you have to have your birds penned up? Mine are all free ranged and i want it to stay that way. I was thinking about getting certified but i dont know much about it.

    Quote:No, they never said that my birds needed to be penned up. I even had several ducks free ranging when they came.

    Our State doesnt even have any forms or they don't list the breeds I have. I just have a card which I got within two weeks.

    I did all the mandatory testing and had the paperwork sent in by the end of January for my hatchery permit and NPIP certification. The state vet first came for his inspection about the end of March. This wouldn't have happened til later but I kept calling and bugging them. By the time all was said and done it was the end of May til my certificate was sent to me. I just kept sending in the 'intrastate sales form' to the MPTL and giving a 'statement of origin' form to the customer. It was the only forms I could download and print off their website. The state must have gotten sick of all those and finally sent me 2 books of the signed 9-3 forms. After a local swap a couple weeks ago I sent in all the mandatory paperwork to the state. I got another phone call from the MPTL saying that you don't need to fill out any paperwork on sales if they are within the state. ??????? Now if you are selling to another NPIP breeder, how do they prove that they got stock from you without all those forms? First they want you to document all sales and now they don't want to deal with all the paperwork . [​IMG]
