    Just one or two? The odds of one hatching won't be very good. Are you looking for bantams or standard sized chickens?

    If you go to the "Buy - Sell - Trade - Giveaway" section, you'll find tons of options.
    But ChicknGurl is right, the odds of hatching one or two eggs aren't very good.
    I had a clutch of 8 eggs under my first broody and only one hatched.
