    I need help! We live in St Louis and have friends in rural France who raise and compete with silver laced Wyandottes. French birds are all one bloodline, so Jacques wants to buy American eggs from competitive birds. Can I do that and can I ship them to France? Could I hand carry them on a plane? This is all new to me, but I must say tha the Silver laced Wyandotte is incredibly beautiful. Can anyone help me!?? Jeanne

    You will need to contact Customs & Homeland Security to see what papers are needed. I know it sounds tedious, but it prevents possible diseases from being spread far & wide. I'm sure the process is not speedy, good luck[​IMG]
