    We have tried hatching eggs a couple times but haven't gotten any luck...we are looking for anyone that isn't to to far from the pittsburgh area that may sell hatching eggs that we could come and pick up. We have tried shipped eggs and just haven't had any luck at all. or if you happen to know any farms that sell them or may have them in the spring

    Not sure where in Pittsburgh, I had the same issue with shipped eggs, did them twice had 3 ducks hatch from 1st attempt and no chickens hatch from second attempt. I found some on Craigslist that are in my incubator now and recently found another local one that sells hatching eggs and chicks whom I bought chicks from . I was doing a web search on Guinea's and found her. It always seems when you aren't looking you find them.. :)

    Here's the query page for Craigslist from your area

    Collection & Storage of Eggs
    Sources for eggs are to search the BYC buy sell trade section, Craigslist and eBay. Your local thread on BYC may be the best bet for local eggs! Look for your local site in the “Social section” “Where am I? Where are You!” on BYC.
