    Yes they can w/a inspection and form from a vet

    (cut and paste)

    US Info

    The following steps outline my own personal experience (David Stuart, Glencoe, ON –
    “Show Secretary”) in a time frame from March 2005 to as recently as March 7, 2006,
    executing five imports into Canada of poultry originating from four different states:
    1/ Locate a "USDA poultry accredited" veterinarian licensed in the state where the
    poultry resides. Of course this private practice vet will charge you a fee for the inspection
    and paperwork
    2/ The vet has to visit your farm and inspect the premises and the actual poultry intended
    for export to Canada. The inspection must take place within 30 days of import.
    Before the vet leaves your site they will need the legband numbers and legband colors
    you intend to place on the export birds. There are also certain tests your farm has to pass,
    if you have not already done so as a matter of your flock health routine, and these are
    noted in your “border crossing letter” later in these instructions. The vet that does your
    inspection will no doubt be able to advise you what tests are required.
    3/ The inspecting vet then has to send paperwork - USDA Form #VS 17-6 - to the state
    USDA office for a counter signature. At some point you will receive your certificate from
    the inspecting vet. The form lists the bird breeds by count and the legbands they should
    be wearing at import.
    4/ Print a copy or copy and paste the following letter and have it available with your
    USDA Form #VS 17-6 at the point of import. NOTE: YOUR POULTRY INTENDED
    FOR IMPORT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE INSPECTED BY A CANADIAN
    GOVERNMENT VETERINARIAN AND THEREFORE YOU DO NOT HAVE TO
    MAKE ANY APPOINTMENT FOR INSPECTION AT THE BORDER
    The chickens will need to be accompanied by a federal export certificate that is called
    "Certificate for Poultry or Hatching Eggs for Export" (USDA form #VS 17-6). I
    have attached the import requirements from our automated import reference system
    below:
    Approved (must be accompanied by the following
    documents/registrations):
    Zoosanitary Export Certificate for Poultry
    DOCUMENTATION INSTRUCTIONS:
    USDA Official Zoosanitary Export Certificate for Poultry is USDA form #VS 17-6.
    USDA Official Zoosanitary Export Certificate must be issued by a USDA
    veterinarian, or issued by a veterinarian and endorsed by a USDA
    veterinarian
