The National Poultry Improvement Plan is a cooperative industry, state and federal program that focuses on improving the health and quality of poultry and poultry products throughout the United States. Participation in the NPIP program is voluntary and in Alabama there is no charge to the individual.  However, most states require NPIP compliance if you are going to produce, sell and SHIP fertile hatching eggs or baby chicks out of state. The State of AL requires you become NPIP certified as an Independent Hatchery and purchase a 10.00 Hatchery Permit every year.  In the link below you will find more information concerning the NPIP program in AL and contact information to set up an inspection.

Time spent with chickens is never wasted.
