    [​IMG] Welcome to the forum! [​IMG] Glad you joined us! [​IMG]

    I'm not sure what type of eggs you are looking for, species, breed, whatever. A few suggestions:

    I don't know where you are located but most states and a few countries have their own thread on here. You might search in this section, the "Where am I? Where are you?" section, and post on your thread. You might find someone local that can help you.

    If you are in the USA, call your county extension agent, in the phone book under county government, and talk to them. This sounds like something they might be able to help with.

    Talk to the people at the feed store. They might know someone that can help, or they might allow you to put a note on a bulletin board.

    There is always Craigslist.

    [​IMG] I agree. You may be able to put up a flier in your local feed store for fertile eggs. You may want to put the breeds you are interested in or you may get a barnyard mix. That is how I sell my chicks is through my local feed stores.

    I posted an adon Craigslist just yesterday and was flooded with responses, and I am just wanting 3-4 eggs. There was another add with a fellow wanting eggs, but his intentions were a bit sketchy so I'm not certain he's gotten any response. I made it clear I am a newbie, experimenting with incubation, and included the fact that if they wanted the chicks after hatching they could have them... I was surprised to get so many responses so soon.
