    Ditto, This not only affects the big hatcheries, but will absolutely cripple small private operations. Thanks for posting this GFamily.

    It's a "special handling fee" - at least, that's what they are calling it. It does specify that it's intended to be applied because more care is expected to be taken with live birds and bees than with non-live packages. However, they don't go into detail to describe how it is that they will actually provide special handling. They make it sound like they already are - but, many of you have made comments here that show it's quite clearly not the case. They also tried to downplay how much the additional fee was going to be. **le sigh** Ain't politics and governmental agencies just grand?

    Only live birds and bees were specifically called out. Let me see if I can find the specifics for you.

    You don't need to sneak oyster shell into their food. Just put a container full of oyster shell out for them. They will know when they need to eat the oyster shell.
