Virginia has specific guidelines pertaining to the interstate/intrastate importation of birds and eggs.  Below is some helpful links and an excerpt direct from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services website.



Most documents are downloadable direct from the website and require Adobe Acrobat Reader to open.  You may download a free copy here-  http://www.adobe.com



[Excerpt from VDACS]
Poultry into VA

2 VAC 5-1140-90. Poultry.
A. Pullorum-typhoid. Hatching eggs and poultry shall not be imported into the Commonwealth of Virginia unless such eggs or poultry originate exclusively from flocks participating in the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) or the National Turkey Improvement Plan (NTIP) (Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter 1, Parts 1 to 199). These programs shall be under the supervision of the official state agency of NPIP or NTIP, the livestock health official, or other authorized government agency of the state of origin certifying them to be free of Pullorum-typhoid.
 

B. Mycoplasma gallisepticum.
Hatching eggs and poultry shall not be imported into the Commonwealth of Virginia unless such eggs or poultry originate from flocks that are designated free of Mycoplasma Gallisepticum by the livestock health official of the state of origin. Each importer of hatching eggs or poultry into Virginia shall secure from the State Veterinarian an approval number, after having provided evidence that the flocks of origin are free of Mycoplasma Gallisepticum. This approval number shall appear on shipping labels or containers of each lot shipped into Virginia.
C. Approval numbers.
 .1. Each shipper of hatching eggs or poultry shall first secure an approval number from the State Veterinarian.
 .This approval number must appear on each shipping label or on each container of hatching eggs or poultry shipped into Virginia.
 .2. Applications for approval numbers must be made on forms provided by the State Veterinarian. Each application shall require the following information on each flock from which the hatching eggs or poultry originate:
 .a. The name and address of each flock owner;
 .b. The species (i.e. chickens or turkeys) and the number of birds in each flock;
 .c. The date of the most recent Pullorum-typhoid test;
 .d. The total number, or the percentage, of positive reactions to the most recent Pullorum-typhoid test;
 .e. The Pullorum-typhoid status attained; and
 .f. Such additional information as the State Veterinarian may require.
2.   3. Such applications, when completed, must be forwarded to the official state agency, the state livestock health official, or other competent and recognized authority of the state of origin for verification, approval and signature; and then forwarded to the State Veterinarian for final approval. Hatching eggs or poultry shall not be shipped into Virginia until final approval has been granted and the approval number is received.

D. Exceptions. This regulation shall not apply to hatching eggs or poultry passing directly through the Commonwealth of Virginia in interstate commerce, nor to poultry imported into the Commonwealth of Virginia for immediate slaughter and consigned directly to a poultry processing establishment that is approved and inspected by the United States Department of Agriculture or by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. 
 

Virginia requires a permit to sell and propogate certain wildlife within the state.  The following link is the permit in PDF format.
