    I have been watching ebay for fertile eggs and was just wondering if eggs are generally available year round, or are we coming to the end of the time that they are avail?

    Though they are available, I wouldn't trust them being shipped in cold weather, or really hot weather either.

    It depends on your climate and the weather they will pass through coming from the seller.

    Seems like there is always someone selling eggs throughout the year. Just be careful of shipping during temperature extremes.
