    Darn. I wish you were closer to Portland. I know lots of people around here with fertile eggs. I would search "fertile eggs" or "hatching eggs" on your local Tacoma/Seattle craigslist(s.) Or check in the "Where am I? Where are you!" forum for Washingtonians and post if anyone can help you out. I guarantee you you'll find someone who can help you out.. If you get desperate and need some week old chicks let me know, and i can ship ya some!! [​IMG]

    I purchased some hatching eggs from a breeder in Cle Ellum, Wa. Good stock. Check out Korfus Kluckers Exhibition Poultry online. The breeder carries large Orpingtons, and some call ducks.

    It best to post on Seattle Craigslist. There are few a persons live in Kent and Gig Harbor have them.

    Take a drive in the country and when you see chickens or a coop at someones house, just go up and ask for eggs. I don't know about WA but here in Texas most folks are more than happy to visit and hook you up with eggs. I had 1 person load me down with 50 guinea eggs for free this spring and about 45 hatched. I offered to pay but they would have nothing to do with it. You don't know if you don't ask!
