When looking for fertile eggs for DD's past projects, I also had a difficulties finding the breeds I liked. A breeder in FL, another in NC, then TX & CA. Talk about a road trip!!!! I ended up making some nice friends in IN. It was a 3 hr drive (one way), BUT I happen to have a niece living near Indianapolis. I planned a fun route, family visit, & made a long day trip out of it.
The Hoosiers have a list of BYC members & what breeds they raise.
What I found most fun about getting hatching eggs via BYC is being able to share pics, stories, & updates with the seller.
