    I am going to start my first ever hatch (well, since I was a kid) this week and was wondering if anyone has some cheap/free hatching eggs they're willing to part with. I'm already buying some eggs from halo, which is great, but I'd like a few more to go with them so I can increase my probability, but don't want to sink a lot of money in until I know it's going to work.

    I will be traveling between Lakeland and Gainesville (via 471 and I-75) on Sunday, so anywhere along the way would be great. Thanks in advance!

    If you are getting eggs from halo, you'll do just fine, I set 12 two weeks ago, 11 have little wigglers in them and set 6 testers for her earlier and have five 4 week old chicks are running around the pen now [​IMG]
