    Hi I have a brooding silkie bantam and I was seeing if anyone have any egg they could fertilize and send to me or if they know any store to get them from

    Some folks say the Trader Joe stores sell fertile eggs (to eat) but, they have hatched out many. There is even a Trader Joe's chicken thread on BYC.

    I don't think you are going to find one fertile egg, and the odds of one hatching aren't as good. I think you should try 3-4 eggs.

    You might get lucky if you post on your state thread. Maybe someone near you has chickens. Just put your state name in the search box and the thread will pop up for you.
