I see the trolls are gone so I can post again,,,I am looking for some fertilized eggs,,I only need a few, duck,chickens,guineas, quail,anything,,,its for a project with a 6 year old,, she has never seen baby chicks and since I have the farm and can give them somewhere to live when they are hatched..I thought it would be fun,, I do not want to spend the money that some hatcheries want for a dozen eggs as I dont need that many. Just a couple eggs of any kind... I have incubators and such and have hatched eggs before,but we lost all our chickens to wolves last year,,Can anyone help me out?, If not I understand,,,Thanks,,,,Jim

Jim, how many eggs fit into your incubator? I had my rooster seperated with 4 hens since those were the combinations I wanted to breed. I have collected enough for a hatch and have returned the rooster with the other 11 hens. I know that is a too many hens for all the eggs to be fertile but I would guess 90% are fertile. The more you could fit on the incubator the better chance of getting chicks. They are a nice mix of hens. The rooster is part auracanna. Let me know if you are interested in any eggs.

I am interested,,I have 2 incubators and could do roughly 50-60 eggs,,I think they hold 30 each if I recall right,, maybe it was 36..I dunno for sure...What kind of price??? Thanks,,,,Jim

how about you pay for the shipping. We sell them to neighbors for $1 per doz but I would not charge for the eggs since it is for your daughter to experience a hatching. I may not be able to get you but three days worth. I am getting around 6-10 per day. Since they say to get them on the incubator within 7 days I could probably only collect them for 3 days before sending them. If you could somehow send me your address I can put them in the mail Monday(upsp priority is best). It is getting too late in the week to try to get them there before the weekend. You will have my address after you recieve them and you can reimburse me for the shipping then.

Don't know about eggs, but I got my six Buff Orpingtons from the local feed store thats been around since the dawn of time. Maybe a local feed store could direct you to a local who has the eggs. Good luck, sounds like she will have a special experience to always remember, and you gave it to her. Gotta love that. :)
