So I'm home with a sick child today, bored out of my mind. Called NLC in Bangor: all of their eggs are from local farms, mixed colors, fertile (per a store manager). Does this spark an idea? Here's my question for you folks in the know. After hearing about the "Trader Joes" hatches of leghorns from their refrigerator cases, why wouldn't the NLC eggs be as likely to hatch for a BYC mixed flock? I assume that in both cases, the bloom would have been washed off the eggs. It might be an interesting way to try out a new home made incubator!!
