    Hello, I am Judith and we are living in the Netherlands Europe in Enschede.
    My English writing is not so good but i will try.
    I have 3 Red Island Red hen chickens. Now 8 month old and i have 4 egss in de machine.
    Tonight I am going to look if in the eggs a little chicken is groing.

    Nice to be here.

    If I want to buy eggs from the USA to put in the machine how can I do that?

    Kind regards Judith

    [​IMG] I would think the trip would take too long and be too rough for any fertilized eggs coming from USA. Even people living in the US generally have poor hatching rates from shipped eggs.

    Your English is very good. We call the' machine' an incubator in this country. People "candle" eggs with a strong flashlight to see if the embryo is developing.

    Hi there, [​IMG] and welcome to BYC!

    I don't know of anyone that ships over seas. Others will be by shortly to welcome you and maybe they will have some ideas for you.

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy BYC!

    Welcom Judith! My wife has family in the Netherlands. We live in Michigan near a strong Dutch settlement region with towns named Holland, Zeeland, Vriesland, Overisel, Drenthe, Graafschap, Borculo and Bentheim. These towns have huge industries based on poultry and tulips. Good to have you here.
