    mine is free and all the paperwork is free. However, we do not get a NPIP certification "card" Some states do.

    A silke breeder in either Washington State or Oregon (I forget which) posted on another forum that it would cost her about $850 to have her small flock tested.

    Quote:Cara, How did you get yours for free? Or do mean the just the VS forms? My testing (in April) was $12; VS forms for free. (Per Kristy, if you need additional testing, you get one free per year. After that, it's $2 - $3 per bird, with a minimum of $10.)
    It's just rough in Colorado because there's only ONE person in the entire state that can sign the VS forms - just be sure you don't run out of them before you re-order.
