    I do not believe so, here in Ohio you do not. To ship may be another story.

    In NC you do not to sell them on your property. If you sell them at a swap or someplace else you need a "green card" from the NCDA. There is one for chick dealer, hatching egg dealer, and Poultry/ratite dealer. The NCDA does check, we have been asked to show ours a few times at sales.

    also for the shipping part that was mentioned, any thing poultry that is shipped over states lines, be it eggs, chicks, or birds has to at minimum be NPIP tested and certified clean for typhoid, some states require additional tests too, and several of them now require you to have their state import permits.
    But just for local sales, no most states dont have any for private sells, some do require you to have game bird permits or breeder permits. That would be something you'd have to ask you state dept of animal health or DNR to be sure of.

    That would be the link I gave on post #4 for NC.
