    Does anyone know where I can get some in Canada? I have been looking but the hatcheries here only sell to schools, or only send with chick orders of 25 or more. I have an empty incubator! Someone please help I am getting desperate.

    Does anyone on this board ship to Canada? Are the regulations regarding shipping to Canada from the US the same for eggs as already hatched chickens?

    From my understanding, eggs shipped to Canada are considered livestock so you need to pick up at the boarder and get a permit to bring the eggs across (around $60 last time I looked). There is a site (canadian egg swappers or something like that) on an MSN group board, maybe they can help?
