Prior to these imports they tested possible flocks in Britain, whether they are disease free, then they collected eggs from disease-free flocks, which were hatched in quarantine. These birds were selected again and they produced hatching eggs and offspring for the export. So they spend more than one Year for such an import. The finally imported birds have been kept in quarantine on a island close to Australia for 3 or 4 weeks before the were released to the mainland. Each import costs about 500000 AUD, as mentioned in the article above.
