Best hatchery to order fertile eggs from?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What have been people's experiences with ordering hatching eggs from hatcheries? I'm specifically looking at My Pet Chicken or Meyers hatchery. I know there is risk in having eggs shipped but are there any hatcheries that has particularly high or low hatch rates consistently? Thanks!

I want only 1-2 eggs of many breeds this time so hatchery is the way I'm going.

I suspect they will send fresh eggs. . So any one that will send you what you want will work. . Far as hatching rates. Depends on how well there shipped. .
There are byers that have several breeds and mix and match to order..
Remember shipping eggs is a risk..most consider a 50% hatch rate good on shipped eggs.. if your set on hatchery stock why not just order chicks? You can even order pullets so there's no need to get rid of cockerels. .
