    My friend got my son an incubator, he wants to do a project for the school science fair on hatching eggs. Luckily we have chickens (egg layers), and happened to end up with two roosters, that so far are well behaved, so for chicken eggs we should be fine with our source. He also mentioned wanting to hatch Turkeys as well. I looked online for sources of eggs, the ones I found it seems like its as much or more to buy fertilized eggs as it is chicks. Does any one have a good source that is reasonably priced ?

    Thank you that's more reasonably priced than I was finding. He found out the science fair isn't until June, registration is in May. We will have done some chickens before then for sure. I was planning on (before getting the incubator) adding at least 12 laying hens & trying to raise turkey this spring. So the science fair will probably be a second or third batch.
