Well, I posted this message under a different subject and then someone was kind enough to point me here where I probably should have posted in the first place. I'm so glad I found this site. I need help fast please. I promised my little granddaughter that I would get her a small incubator and some eggs to hatch for her birthday that is coming up in a couple of weeks. I found a small 3 chicken egg incubator online that is reasonably priced and will probably order it for her. Trouble is their 3 egg package for it costs more than the incubator and I can't see paying nearly $10.00 per egg. So, I'm hoping someone here can point me in the direction of someone/someplace here in the East TN area in or near Sevier County where I can get eggs much more reasonably priced. I surely don't want to disappoint my granddaughter for her birthday but I just can't afford to pay $30.00 for three eggs to go in a $20.00 incubator. If you can help me keep my promise to my granddaughter for her birthday without going broke I would sure appreciate your help. And, while I'm here let me go a bit further and say that I grew up here in East TN and have many fond memories of farm life from spending lots of time on my grandparents farm. Which is what got this whole egg hatching thing started. My deal with my son is for my granddaughter to hatch them out and I am going to take them here at my house out in the country. A few years ago we built our house we live in now and I drew the plans because I wanted a farmhouse type home that reminded me of my grandparents place. So, now the next step I want to take is to become more self sufficient like they were and raising chickens is my next step in that direction. So, I'm not just here looking for eggs for my granddaughter to hatch. I'm here because I love everything about the country and I love chickens and plan to make them a permanent part of my life soon. So, I'll be needing lots of help to get me going.
