    I will soon be setting a pile of eggs in the incubator.

    I want 3 types, Buff orpington, Black maran & Aracauna.

    The issue I have is if I order them online they need to be shipped.

    Has anyone done this & had success in cold weather? I'd hate to spend upwards of $75 (I need a bunch of eggs for the very large inc. I built!) and have them die before arriving due to the cold.

    Is there anyone local to the Peoria IL area that has these breeds & would be willing to sell me a couple dozen fertile eggs?

    We have buff orpingtons and we've had great hatching successes here and also shipped. Your results of course may vary. I can work with you on shipping dates if that is helpful. Please let me know if I can help you in any way. Have a blessed day. Nancy
