                                            prepared by
                                     Dr. Nick Zimmermann

                                        nickz@umd.edu
            A digital version is located at http://ansc.umd.edu/faculty/nzpub.htm

        The commercial sources of poultry, eggs, and chicks listed are from National Poultry
Improvement Plan (NPIP) Pullorum-Typhoid and Avian Influenza Clean Breeder Flocks listed as
commercial hatcheries. The suppliers also meet state and federal sanitation requirements. Always
ask for certificates of health whenever you purchase poultry or eggs. This list is provided to small
flock owners as a partial source and does not represent an endorsement, or recommendation, of the
individuals or firms by the University of Maryland or states and universities providing this list to
you. This list provides names and addresses of sources of equipment and supplies not normally sold
in feed stores.
        REMEMBER, the danger of entry of contagious diseases such as Pullorum-Typhoid and
Avian Influenza into your flock or state is a real threat. You must do your part as a small flock
owner to practice good management and health programs to prevent the spread of diseases into other
small or commercial flocks. It is important that you follow recommendations put out by state
universities, state and federal government agencies and poultry organizations. Well-managed birds
will also be more productive.
       Contact your county Cooperative Extension agent listed under the county listing in your
phone book (or extension.umd.edu/local/index.cfm ) for education materials on small flock health
and management. An excellent source is MEP 300, Raising Your Home Flock, which is available
from your County Agent or on-line at http://pubs.agnr.umd.edu/Publication.cfm?ID=323&cat=L
        The State of Maryland requires that all fowl at fairs, shows, swap meets, etc. to either
originate from an Avian Influenza free flock or be tested free of Avian Influenza within 10 days of
the event. (www.mda.state.md.us; www.ansc.umd.edu/faculty/nzpub.htm) To avoid problems
always purchase hatching eggs and poultry from NPIP certified AI free vendors.
        NPIP status of vendors can be determined by contacting your state NPIP coordinator; else go
to www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/npip/, complete a form and a Directory of Participants will be mailed. In
Maryland, Kimberly Jones is the NPIP coordinator (Phone: 410-543-6610; Fax: 410-543-6676;
email: kimberlyjones36@hotmail.com).
        Many small flock owners wish to have their flocks tested for AI because of Maryland
regulations and the threat of pandemic influenza (www.pandemicflu.gov/plan/pdf/guide.pdf).
Kimberly Jones has a list of Maryland Certified NPIP Poultry Testing Agents. The list can also be
found in a publication titled “Poultry Health Requirements for Admission to Maryland Fairs and
Shows – 2005” (www.ansc.umd.edu/faculty/nzpub.htm) These Agents are volunteers who will take
the required samples, test them and provide the NPIP health certification forms for a fee.
