Anybody here ever have any dealings with McMurray Hatchery, in PA? I wonder if they allow hatching egg customers to pick up, or whether they're shipping only.
All the horror stories I've read on here about the rough handling shipped eggs have to endure makes me afraid to go that route. Buying live birds entails quarantine, so that's out,
I don't know of anyone local breeding RIR's, & haven't noticed any CL ads for fertile RIR eggs. I'm not looking to do anything til Spring; just trying to get my "ducks in a row" early.
Anybody got any bright ideas?
This may all be moot; was just on their web site, and it doesn't appear that they even sell hatching eggs.
Oh, well, back to the drawing board.
not every one has bad hatches with shipped eggs a lot of hatchery's sell hatching most of them are over four bucks each .some include shipping some don't . look on ebay for what you want as close to you as you can find it . make sure you read the feed back on the seller .good incubation good shipping some hatches come out well . there was a guy that ordered eggs from McMurray and had a 100% hatch in a home made bator this past spring somewhere up north . they sell hatching eggs just aren't selling them now.
