One of the testing options below:
Participation in the NPIP or equivalent program and flock classification as “U.S. pullorum-typhoid clean” (all poultry except turkeys) or “U.S. pullorum-typhoid clean” and “Mycoplasma gallisepticum clean” (turkeys) or
individual tests by species within 90 days prior to import for test-eligible birds (turkeys 6 months and older, all other poultry 4 months and older)
All fowl must have a negative individual test for pullorum (fowl typhoid)
