    It is not easy to do legally. I am not sure where you can find out. I know there are laws about it. Most people can not.

    Hi I have had eggs shipped to me (Canada) from the states. If you are NPIP certified it is not a big deal at all. You just attach a copy of your NPIP certificate to the box containing the eggs and get a US Customs Declaration form from the post office and also attach it to your box. Just write on the box please do not xray. I have had no problem at all . I received 48 silkie eggs and only 2 were cracked. I was very thankful that someone would ship the eggs to me.

    I am in canada and the last time i inquired about this to the customs and also to the postoffice, and to my local conservation authority i was told that eggs are fine, live birds are not... and the eggs are only fine if its not from a protected or endangered bird
