....or just in the spring?
They are available if a rooster is available!
All year- especially if you do not live somewhere that the weather gets too cold to ship them to you.
Frozen eggs don't hatch well. But if you are from Largo, FL- you should be able to get them anytime. Infact you might find that you like raising them in the cooler part of your year- Say December/January...
Welcome to BYC!
I live in Missouri and if I collect they eggs during the Winter, I have to check often for them. Some hatch, but some have become to cold and don't hatch. Usually I start hatching in January, but it is still cold and my hatch is not always that great.
they are available all year, HOWEVER.... the circumstances of shipping during summer(possible sitting in a hot truck/warehouse etc...) makes some leary of shipping/recieving eggs in the summer, just the opposite is true of the winter, eggs and freezing temps dont mix well.
awesome! thank you all for the fast replies. i'm asking because the eggs i'm incubating now are ones i got from ebay auctions. i'm only on day nine, but i'm not very confident in having any kind of hatch. i don't see any movement at all from any of them. i'm using a LG still air, temp is 101.5-102 and hum. is 42-48%. that should be a good condition, but i'm skeptical. i guess i'll wait to see. i just wanted to see if i could get eggs at the end of the month if none (or few) of mine do hatch.
MORE eggs are available to buy in the spring/summer because many breeds of hens stop laying or slow down during the winter. But you can still find them to buy - I hatched out about 200 chicks this past fall and winter from eggs from many different breeders.
I sell and hatch year round. I would say that it's important to work with persons who are very careful to check their eggs and fertility and willing to be careful regarding when to ship. There is another thread regarding how cold eggs can get during shipment. I don't want to be accused of hijacking your thread so if you are interested in any of the many breeds we raise, I'd be glad to send that to you.
Thanks and have a blessed day.
Quote:thank you for the offer. i will certainly be in contact if mine don't hatch out with much success. the 21st is my hatch date. if i need more eggs, i will pm you and see what we can work out from there.
