    Hi all
    I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on hatching chicks in June. Do you think it's too late in the season? What would the availabity of purchasing eggs from the members on BYC be at that time? Thanks for any input. I live in Georgia if that has any bearing.

    I incubate year round and have never had a problem getting eggs. I don't know about the availability from BYC members per say as I am relatively new to this forum but other sources always seem to have eggs readily available.

    Its never too late to hatch these little wonders, just need a cool, stable temp place to keep the bator so you have no big temp fluctuations. Good luck on your late June/early July hatch!!!!

    June--nope, not to late.

    To us, Nov is to late because then they have to stay inside longer.

    Quote:no. it's never too late. it's all about what works for you.

    people offer eggs all year, but from different areas, because of the cold not being good to ship eggs in. try maybe some local sellers from GA.
    BYC member, bargain, is in GA and has very nice stock.

    I think you can probally get eggs any time depending on what you want, but some members may not be shipping due to the heat.

    I would love to help you! I live in Bowdon which is nearby. We have a variety of eggs - from Speckled Sussex, White Leghorns, 2 kinds of RIR, Barred Rocks, Buff Orpingtons and much much more.

    Feel free to just send me a pm. I'll send you a phone number in return and customize for you what you want.

    Newnan is close enough by that you could preorder what you want and pick up at the farm!

    Hope I'm selected! I'll also be delighted to help you with any poultry questions you might have.

    By the way we incubate year round and that works just great for us.

    We full time farm on a chemical free farm, so you might be able to get some veggies too!

    Thanks and have a blessed day.
