    Looking for free or cheap eggs to hatch. Want meat bird especially, but would also like to try hatching others. So far have hatched 1 plymouth rock, it is 3 weeks old and cute as can be. And 2 silkies, they are adorable too.
    We are limited income as we moved home from FL to assist elderly father..

    ould send you some mixed breed eggs for $12/doz. Sory,but shipping is sooo high. You could check local Farmer's markets and might do well there.

    Would you be interested in Silver Sebright eggs? I have had 100% fertility and 100% hatch rate.
