    Does anyone know of a hatchery near Boston that sells fertile eggs or newly hatched chicks? Every spring we hatch a dozen eggs for our kids, then take them to my cousin's farm in Lancaster, PA. In the past I have ordered the eggs by mail, and most of them have hatched. This year we only got one chick probably because the eggs got very cold when they were shipped. We want to find a local supplier of fertile eggs for next year. We also want to get a few more live chicks to keep our one little hatchling company. Thanks!

    Where are you located? There are many members from MA who have both chicks and fertile eggs available. It all depends on what breed you're looking for. There's a general discussion thread for MA area people here:

    Try posting there to see what everyone has.

    Ooops. Reread your post and it seems you're in PA. You may want to change your title so it mentions which state you're in.
