Does anyone have information on what permits are required? USDA is asking for Form VS 17-6, which is mainly for chickens and parrots. Vet check for 50 birds $1000!
Does anyone have info/advise?

AKBruce, I'm puzzled? I have shipped birds within the continental U.S. via U.S.Postal with no restrictions. Who said you need a permit? Will the Canadian authorities require any permits? Why would there be any difference then moving from Ohio to Kentucky, with no permit required. Granted, I might be misinformed but much like our government, apologize later for a mistake today, or I will gladly pay you Wednesday for a hamburger today.

Take care

I think you have to meet the same requirements for shipping from the Mainland to Hawaii.

The 3 Canadian Proviences are OK with transport by highway vehicle, the problem is the USDA which has termed my rollers a "Commercial Flock" with a requirement that a vetcheck be done and approved by a Fed vet to reenter Montana.The certification is that there is no Newcastle disease, Fowl typhoid or 3 or 4 other chicken problems plus parrot fever. I got a quote of $1,000 for a vet check of my 50 birds AKBruce

AK, Is there a minimal amount of birds you can bring across the border without any requirements. I would only bring my best breeders and start from there. If it was $1000.00 for fifty, how much for two? Once in the U.S. with the aid of fosters, you could have your strain established in one breeding season.Can you mail by U.S. Postal and by pass all of the funforall?
Take care

I just had some fo my birds shipped to Hawaii. I can get you in touch with the guy who ships to Hawaii. He should know how to do it at a reasonable cost. I'm sure that there are no more restrictions for your shipment than what he does. You can e-mail me at

To the best of my memory the only whay to ship birds without a vetcheck or quarantine period through the USPS is if they are less than 24 hours old. I ran into this shipping birds to Alaska and if you get caught fibbing it is a hefty fine and possible jail time.
