I'm trying to acquire an assortment of eggs for a first grade classroom incubation project. Chickens, ducks, a few turkeys, maybe a few guineas, maybe some quail. I have two incubators so I'm probably looking at a max of 24 to 30 eggs. We've done this before and the kids really enjoyed seeing all the different chicks. I'm hoping to put them in the incubator by 4/18 so that they will be hatched by the time school is done. If that doesn't work, they won't get in until the week of 4/28. This is not a high budget operation so I'm hoping for reasonable price and shipping. We are in northern Maine (Aroostook County) and I haven't been able to find a local source for any fertile eggs at all! I appreciate your consideration in advance.
