I'm going to have to drop by both Safeway and TJs.  Next time I put some in the bator, I'll become a member of the TJ Egg Hatching Cliub.

I just love Joey,

According to the trader joes site, your closest store is 55 miles away in Chapel Hill, NC. I've driven farther for eggs wink

OK gang... I'm doing it again!  I was at Trader Joe's yesterday, and couldn't resist looking at the eggs.  They were just loading the shelf with new fertile eggs, only 7 days old.  So, I set a dozen last night.  Our little TJ could use a few leghorn friends!  Wish me luck!

It was your little experiment that got my daughter and I thinking about hatching grocery store eggs.  Trader Joe's ended up being a success for us since there are so many local stores and their fertile egg supplier is only about 30 miles away from us.  There are many times I see eggs 3 days old in our local Trader Joe's. From the post I have read, it looks like fertile eggs in Trader Joe's is a West Coast thing.

Anyone have recent pictures of the TJs chicks or chickens to post?  I took this one yesterday.

Just out of curiosity, what was the oldest TJ eggs, you guys have set? I just threw a dozen 10 day old eggs in my bator to test it (I just finished making it). 10 day was the freshest they had, so for $2 I thought why not try it.

Whole Foods has fertile eggs too.  I was there on Valentine's Day and had to slap my own hand away! smack

My TJ hatched out of eggs that were 3 weeks old when I bought them.
