where to buy hatching eggs?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I lost my rooster on DEC 28 to a neighbors dog, i saved what eggs i had left (8) and one of my hens went broody on them. she gave up with only a few days left til hatch and i am devastated. with the addition of a larger coop i really need some fettered friends to fill the coop and the void in my heart. i will be buying a incubator from my local TSC to raise more chicks but i no longer have any fetal eggs. I'm thinking about buying some barred rocks but Ive never purchased hatching eggs before and i need some direction on who to buy from. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

I've found two folks locally selling fertile eating eggs for $2.50 and $3 a dozen. Turns out they both have closed flocks of Rhode Island Reds. The first are hatching at over 80% and I have just started a batch from the second seller so I can see how they do.

No way you can beat that buying and shipping in hatching eggs. Ask around at your local feed stores or check local bulletin boards. I bet you can find fertile hatching eggs close to home for a great price.

You smell that? Do you smell that? Broody poop, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that.

I love the smell of broody poop in the morning.

It smells like... progeny

Buy from this website. Best place to buy. The people on here are honest about what they have and most people ship fantastically. This is also one of the few websites where you can buy purebreds, even rare purebreds. 

I became interested in hatching and raising chickens during a developmental genetics class where we manipulated the genetic code of chicken embryos. One year later, I have many chickens, mostly Ameraucanas and Silkies.
