    Yes, you are supposed to get your NPIP Certification before you ship hatching eggs.

    Depends on the state you are shipping them into, really. Some do not require NPIP, but will take a vet's certificate of health. Some require NPIP plus an additional permit. It varies by state.

    Now, do people follow that? In all truth, usually not. I think you'll find 95% of all hatching eggs being shipped by BYC members are by non-NPIP folks.
