    Hi Mamma Dixie. My husband also ties flies. There are a few sources of fertilized eggs for fly-tying birds - but no chicks that I ever found. This is our first year with chickens, so we didn't want to try to hatch eggs. My husband got some bantam dark brahma hens for their hackle - but he is a chicken-softie. He loves those girls, and there is no way they will end up in his fly-tying desk! PM me if you can't find a thread on here about fly-tying, I'll help you find the site with eggs for sale.
