    Hello, I am new to San Diego and also am attempting my first hatch using an incubator. I had signed up for the BYC New Years Day Hatch-Along and then a disaster occurred when a friend insisted on adjusting the thermostat...It took nearly a week and a half before it finally suddenly was adjusted to the proper setting where it would maintain the correct temperature...I didn't order eggs as I did not forsee it working in time..The eggs are to go into the incubator at noon today (Tuesday, December 10th)...

    I know it is a long-shot but someone suggested I post on this thread to see if perhaps anyone local had some eggs that I could buy. If anyone has a few eggs to spare could you please contact me?

    Thanks! matt

    If nothing else, some people have had success with hatching fertile eggs from Trader Joe's. Good Luck!

    Someone actually contacted me last night about Trader Joes and I think this definitely will be my back-up plan..I joined one of the TJ threads a little while back but most of the posts I read were not terribly successful or they were just setting the eggs to try it out but someone who actually has had good luck wrote to me and explained it to the point I could understand a bit better.

    thanks for the advice! matt
