    If you're just wanting some inexpensive ones to try out your incubator, I'd suggest Craig's list, local farmers' markets, or even local farmers. Some natural food stores sell fertile eggs to eat; people here have successfully hatched some of them. You could also run an ad on Craig's list yourself, or perhaps in a pennysaver type newspaper.

    Shipped eggs are always a gamble. A lot depends on how the package was handled during shipping, no matter how well they are packed, and they have to be well packed.
