    There are eggs for sale on BYC for both those breeds. Ask on the crazy 24 hr auction who has them if you dont see them up in the buy sell trade section.

    ALSO! if you are trying to hatch for jan 1st, look at the hatch a long thread, its tons of fun to hatch wiht other people and that will be a big one with prizes, etc.
