    I would like to buy some hatching eggs soon and hatch them out. However I do not currently own a working incubator (I am really considering a Genesis Eco Digital. Gotta wait tho.)

    I was hoping to find someone on here who is hatching chicks or who is planning to set some eggs soon. I would be willing to buy newly hatched chicks or I would be willing to split the cost with someone on hatching eggs. I also plan to buy hatching eggs of 4-5 rare breeds as well.

    I plan on raising mostly rare Heritage breeds, Such as Barred Rocks, Delawares, Dominiques, Redcaps, French Copper Marans, Welsummers, Ameraucanas, Araucanas, New Hampshire Reds, Barnevelders, etc. I am VERY picky when it comes to selection of chicks and hatching eggs. I breed to maintain birds that are true to breed first, then comes other factors like egg production, egg color, meat to feed ratios, etc.

    If you can, please help. Thanks.
