    What a great board...I've loved reading through the various threads!

    My kids are very interested in hatching their own chicks. My problem is that I don't have anywhere to raise them. If anyone in the Central MA (Worcester) area has some fertile eggs - I would be happy to come pick some up, hatch them in our incubator, and return the chicks when they are 2-3 weeks old. It would be a great educational opportunity for my kids but I want to make sure I have a home for the chicks before we jump into it.

    Please email me if interested!

    Where are you? I'm in Western MA and I have a friend with plenty of space who could prob take them if I end up with way too many chickens after the hatch we are doing in early August. When would you be hatching and from whence would you be getting yr eggs?

    Let us know more and maybe we can take them.

    best.

    We're in Worcester. If all goes as planned our eggs will be hatching in late July and we'd have to give them up in early August.

    Since it's primarily an educational experience for the kids we will probably only incubate 4-6 eggs.

    Thanks for your reply.
