    I just contacted a person at NDOA, who is going to send me all the information I need to get certified, here in Nevada. I will post the info or links to it as soon as I receive it.

    Thanks I am getting ready to do this, we are planning on taking our flock to the next level. We have put together quite a breeding flock mostly from npip certified flocks and paid alot for some of the birds(so I want them healthy) and want to be able to sell with confidence to also be able to get the most profit out of my birds. Any information you have on the process would be great.
  5. I know this thread is a bit old, but I wanted to reply to it stating, I just sent my local Florida agent a message to find out how to become NPIP certified here. I will come back with the info I find in case anyone here in Florida is interested.

    This NPIP stuff is without a doubt confusing. I still don't fully get everything about it, if at all. I hate how authority really has to make everything so complicated.

    Anyway I live in Minnesota, (found out my state is the leader for poultry stuff), and just found out about this NPIP stuff... to be honest I was a bit upset about it because it's required for importing and exporting of anything poultry from adults to eggs in this state, and I recently bought some non-NPIP hatching eggs off ebay [​IMG] I had no idea I was "being illegal", assuming that I was. I don't suppose there's anyone in this forum that knows more about this stuff, particularly in my state? What's even more confusing is I also found out that you must(?) fill out an application for importing poultry and hatching eggs for this state, just what the ----? If the seller is already NPIP certified do I still need to have the application filled out to be buying from them? This is all so frustrating [​IMG], seriously. I just sent an email to the "officials" asking about this, I hope they can put it all in plain English for me but I'm more then happy to get any info from others as well. Thanks in advance.

    I live in Kentucky and have just purchased 6 chicks. I'm getting ready to e-mail Sue Blair to find out more about NPIP. I'll post what us kentuckians have to go through once I find out.
