do you have to have a permit to sell hatching eggs???
I dont know about chickens.. But I do know if you want to sell button quail eggs and pharoh (cortnix) quail eggs and or birds. You need a permit in oregon.. I emailed some place in oregon and found out.. I could try and see if I still have that email or contact info, if you want it..
I will be watching this thread to find out if you have to have a permit for all hatching eggs. Or just quail here in oregon..
No. That is one thing the government does not regulate yet.
Soon we'll be taxed on chicken farts.

In MD you are required to hold a permit to sell hatching eggs and live birds. It basically licenses you to operate as a hatchery. I assume this is somthing that differs from state to state.
It depends on the area that you live in. I would suggest checking your local laws to find out or at least with maybe your local Farmers Market.
Yes it does depend on where you live. I am in pa. Here bobwhites and ring neck pheasants and mallard ducks (no matter if from hatchery or not) must have a permit. You can own them without but you can not sell them or give them away (both birds or eggs). Now cortunix and button quails and red golden, yellow golden and many other pheasants are considered ornamental and we do not need a license.
It is required by most States to be NPIP certified to ship eggs in. Some States also request a permit with special certifications like being "MG free" to ship eggs into their State.
However, most people are not certified and therefore are not trackable when they ship eggs and are breaking laws when they do so.
I do foresee the individual states cracking down on this soon.
You are right they have here in pa.. they are training mega people to be a poultry technician and I know its coming soon on a major crack down.
We have had the law in effect for about 10-15yrs.. they just never really enforced it but they will soon be with vengence.
Just have to be NPIP to sell to people out of state I think. I know in PDX you have to have a permit to have more than 3 laying hens.
