    I have a very young hen that sits on the 2 golf balls I put in the nesting boxes non-stop. If I open the box, she ruffles and squawks at me. Anyone have fertile eggs available? I live in central Utah. Thanks!

    I can ship you some Marans hatching eggs if you like. I live in Florida but people have had great hatches so far [​IMG]

    Darn! We live in WA but I lived in Utah my whole life until 3 years ago. Grew up in SLC and then bought a house in Santaquin. Where bouts are you?
    Have you checked the "Where am I, where are you!" Utah thread? I bet you can find someone to give you some.

    Wish you were closer... I'd get you some eggs. I grew up in central Utah.... 2 miles west of Santaquin.

    @quaillady, I might take you up on that. How much for eggs and shipping?

    @mothersin2ition and mahonri, I live in Fairview - about 50 minutes southeast of Santaquin. I'll have to look on the "Where am I, where are you!" thread...

    Have you try Craigslist from where you are?

    There doesn't ever seem to be much on craigslist around here. KSL (a local tv station) has kind of cornered the market on classified ads.

    I also live in Utah. I would suggest checking with Christie at Sunnybrooke Farm. She lives in Sandy and probably has fertile eggs you could buy! Here is the website. http://sites.google.com/site/sunnybrookefarm/ Very nice lady! Good luck!
