    We're all dressed up -- with no eggs to hatch! I grew up with chickens and my kids have really enjoyed keeping them -- and eating all those delicious eggs! When our two RIR were eaten by a backyard predators (coyote? raccoon? possum? -- we have all kinds of critters in the open space behind our house) we got a new coop, waited until the right time -- and now we're ready to start hatching again.

    We live in the East Bay of Northern California and I would love to get my hands on 6 eggs to hatch, of course we want hens but a roo or two would be okay. We love RIRs but could be up for any good layers -- want them ASAP while the kids are still out of school. We can even drive a little distance to pick them up as we have lots of summer time on our hands right now.

    Suggestions?? I"m all ears!

    Welcome to the forum! [​IMG] Sounds like you're ready to get going with incubating. I would recommend posting in WTB section of the forum to find someone with eggs nearby. Best wishes!
