    Looking for any type of eggs. Duck, guinea, chicken, quail... any breed. We can no longer keep adult poultry but chicken was a main part of the raw diet for both our domestic common pets and exotics and we just acquired more bengals which are asian leopard domestic cat crosses. I'm thinking of trying to hatch out 2-3 dozen chicks a month and butcher them by a week old plus maybe a dozen eggs to feed straight to the animals. I don't care what the eggs are as long as they are cheap, fertile, fit in my incubator (not sure about goose egg or larger) and within easy driving distance. We are living in North Liberty, have a stable in west liberty I'm at 3 times a week, and travel several times monthly to the quad cities.
