    Ummm... I've had good luck on eBay! I just make sure the seller has great feedback, and has been selling eggs on eBay for a good long time.

    Every day I go look for "chicken hatching eggs" on eBay, after I've looked through the offerings in BYC's BSA section. (I've gotten eggs from both, prefer BYC, but have purchased plenty on eBay.)

    Greyeyes,
    Who is the seller that you buy from ebay? I had a bad experience buying fertile eggs from Ebay. I ordered one dozen of each RIR and Dominique eggs and I didn't even hatch one.

    I've had good luck from e-bay eggs, but have had more bad luck.

    I use Ovabid.com and FeatherAuction.com to list eggs on.

    Alot of breeders are using bidbird.com since eggbid went down the tubes.

    Of course, the BEST hatching eggs are the ones that DON'T have to be handled by USPS
