    I would like to get Delawares,Plymouth Rocks,and Lakenvelders to add to our flock. Fertile eggs, or chicks. Can any one help me locate these. Thanks

    Do you want them from independent breeders or hatchery? McMurray carries the Delawares and Lakenvelders.

    Quote:We would go for either at this point. Private or commercial breeders.

    McMurray has all three... but probably won't have them available until February... get your order in early.

    Also... there are probably folks on here who could sell you hatching eggs.

    I should have both Silver and Golden Lakenvelders eggs in about 6 weeks. I want to be sure of my fertility before shipping any.

    If you want to go through a hatchery, all three of those breeds are avaliable from My Pet Chicken, or directly from Meyer.

    I believe Cackle, Nature's, Mt. Healthy....
    I think most hatcheries have them.

    With the colder part of the year coming would you be able to ship eggs safely ? If so would you be willing to sell some fertilized eggs? Thanks MHO​
