    I live in southern Ontario, Canada. I want to order some chicks from the states.

    Now, will the chicks need health certificates like a cat or dog ? Do I need anythin to get them over here ?

    Thanks !

    You will need to talk with the Canadian authorities.

    If I remember correctly the chicks would be shipped to a post office on the US side of the border. You would then go get them and have the papers with you at the border.
    Canada requires certian papers with each chick shipment.
