Anyone out there? I've been doing some reading on heritage breeds etc. (Most interesting and alarming!) I'd like to get into Chanteclars and anything else that needs saving. Also any input re: shipping and selling across the U.S./Can. boarder would be helpfull. Seems the U.S. endangered lists are much longer than ours. Any and all input/info is greatly welcomed. Bring it on!

If you get birds from the US the breeder you got them from needs to be NPIP certified or something and needs to get a healthcertificate from the Vet(which is around $66), then they got to drive to the border(or ship them to the nearest town) and you got to drive down and pick'em up.

This is just what I've read/heard from breeders which have done it already.

Thanks for the input. It's for the above reasons I got out of the (super expensive) dog breeding hobby. It's one thing if your travelling anyway.... I'm not far from the border but rules and regs. (understandably) are getting so that I just don't have that kind of patience. Thanks again!

Import regulations being what they are, shipping across the boarder is impossible. It has become very difficult between the states. It took me three weeks to get the permits necessary to ship hatching eggs to Hawaii.
Your best bet, is to ship to a boarder town, cross the line, and pick them up. A health certificate is not required, but Pullorum Paperwork is a safety precaution depending upon what state you ship to.
