    I am looking for 2 eggs to hatch out in my new incubator. I have 2 red sex link hens (11 months old), and 1 Red/Blue Wheaten Ameraucana Roo with really good blue egg genes(6 months and still not crowing). I am looking for eggs that will hatch out hens that should produce blue, green, or chocolate brown eggs so that I can mix this with my Roo. Can anyone help me out? Most every auction I see is for way more eggs than I want to hatch.

    You might have to buy a dozen of eggs to just get a few to hatch. You never want to have just one chick to hatch. They will cry all the time.

    This time of year i would suggest buying at least 6 eggs and up to 12. Not all of them should hatch due to shipping, incubation method....ect. Even if they all do hatch, you can always sell them.
