So I've been trying for almost TWO years to get someone to come out & test my birds...last August, I was told to contact them after the 1st of the year to set up an appointment. I was also told it was free. So I email them today and I get back a response stating that it's $85/hour for the inspection & one test--the responding lady did not know if the $85/hour was just for the time spent ON our farm or for time/travel (Olympia is a good 7 hour drive from us!) She then finished by saying the second (required) test is something that we'd also have to pay for out of pocket! She told me to be prepared for a few hundred dollars--maybe more, depending on how many birds I had to have tested! ARRRGGGHHH! So now what? I REALLY wanted to be certified this year! If I purchase NPIP certified babies from NPIP certified breeders, do those need to be tested too? Every bird on my place is out of hatching eggs (minus my birds from Holderreads' and Holderreads' is NPIP certified). The others I've selected from NPIP breeders.... I am going to write them back--but I'm not sure what to say now?? Although I know what I want to say!
