Hey everyone, just wanted to join the thread if it's still somewhat active, I recently hatched 8 Icelandic eggs, 1 passed 24 hours later but the other 7 are doing wondefully, they are a tad over 1 week old I really want to buy another dozen or so from someone nearby, I live in middle eastern Va. I drove 3 hours to get 30 eggs from 2 different breeders in Northern Va, 12 from 1 breeder, 18 from another, 6 of the 12 hatched and only 2 of the 18! The breeder that sold me the 18 had told me she would replace them if I didn't get a good hatch but she has been VERY hard to get a hold of since I picked the eggs up and I really don't think she plans to replace them. I've had a very BAD experience with her so I'm looking elsewhere The other breeder was awesome and I wouldn't mind going back to her but I really want some that aren't directly related to the majority of mine. I'm thinking of waiting til spring to try to hatch more but I'm starting my "breeder search" now, lol. Are there any breeders near me that ship? Or live close enough that I could pick them up in 2 hours or less?
ETA: I'm really interested in the Lyle Behl bloodline, I have Sigrid and Hlesey lines right now.
