One of the requirements of being a part of the Sustainable Poultry Network is to be certified by the NPIP. What does that mean?! NPIP stands for the National Poultry Improvement Plan. This is a federal program that tests for several common diseases including Avian Bird flu and Pullorum. All of the breeding flock has blood tested and once the flock/farm has been given the clean bill of health, a NPIP # is given. This allows customers of eggs and chicks to know that our birds will not pass on diseases. We are happy to say we have been approved and received our NPIP # this week!
