    Thinking about getting set up to hatch 500 plus chicks per batch and wondering what the laws are if I sell and ship them?? I'm in rural north Texas.

    Some states require that all shipped chicks come from NPIP certified flocks.

    What breeds are you hatching?

    You will need to be NPIP plus a 9-3 report of sale plus some states require avian influenza clean . Some states require a entry permit number for the year . Free but required .

    Contact your state vet . They are in charge of NPIP 9-3 forms avian influenza testing . Each state must be contacted for entry permits if required . Look under AG department .
