Hi, I live in the Portland suburbs, and would like to buy maybe three eggs for my broody to sit on. She is a 25 week old Cuckoo Marans, and the first really dedicated broody I have had out of my 17 birds. She has been broody for a good week or so, sits patiently on her pretty pink golf balls, all puffed up in the darkest corner of the tractor nest box and growls/screeches whenever we try to remove her from her nest, which has been lined with her breast feathers. Since she is new to this, and I don't know how far she will take it, for certain, I would just like to have maybe three eggs. My husband is not interested in more chickens, but I am, though I only want a few more. I went to the Clackamas County Fair poultry area over the weekend, and the woman working the booth didn't know anything about anyone who might have any eggs for hatching. She tried to tell me how to break a broody, which I am not interested in doing, and she persisted in telling me how bad it is for a hen to go broody, and that my hen could die from it. That's one of the reasons I would like a few eggs. That and just having more babies, that is. Is there anyone, locally, who might have just a few eggs? I am happy to pay for them, but was hoping to avoid buying extras in case some don't make it due to mishaps in the mail. If I had a choice, I would love more EE's or Marans, Australorps, Orpingtons, Barnevelders , Polish, Welsummers, Sussex or Silkies. . . that's my wish list. Please let me know if you can help me. Thanks.
