In the past I've ordered quail eggs off Ebay, with better than expected success. I've started browsing eggs on Ebay again, this time for chickens, and I fear I may become addicted!! Haven't bid on anything yet, I'm waiting on my husband to bring my incubator out of storage the next time he comes home. (Army thing) But once it's plugged in... I think the paypal funds will be the only thing holding me back! LOL Already compiled a list of fave sellers, based on the breed, the looks of the photo'd birds, ect. So excited! I know I could buy privately... but using Ebay is half the fun! (unless you buy-it-now) I found my brooder in dad's attic, found the light in the basement when we were cleaning that out... found a huge pile of scrap framing wood, two rolls of rabbit wire... it's totally meant to be! I'll only have to buy corogated roofing, chicken wire, and plywood, which I found on craigslist, for 1/3 of what the lumbar yard charges. Yay!
