    I'm looking to start my chicken/egg-obsession rolling and I am looking for a good source for fertile eggs that's near enough that I could pick them up. I'm also open to buying online for a reasonable price. There are farms EVERYWHERE up here, but, I can't find somewhere to buy fertile eggs without paying an wing and a drumstick!

    Where do you buy your fertile eggs?

    Do you know of a place in the Portland or Gresham, Oregon, areas or the Vancouver or Ridgefield, Washington, areas?

    Thanks bunches!

    Check out the auctions on this site. Sellers on ebay also have fertile eggs. Folks have posted here that the store Trader Joe's has fertile eggs.

    Um....(stupid question coming)....how do I get to the auction part of this site? I'm brand new to the site and I have no clue where to look.

    I'll have to call Trader Joe's! I had no clue they sold fertile eggs! [​IMG]

    You're doing the right thing trying to get them local.
    Check Craigslist.
