    I was reading and multiple people said to go to trader Joe's to get fertilized eggs? Do they not refrigerate the eggs? I'd like to know if anyone from my area actually hatched eggs out that way? Also if anybody has fertilized eggs available in my area that would be great!

    Lots of people on that thread are hatching store eggs. Many from Trader Joes. I've read that the eggs will actually say fertilized eggs on the carton although apparently not all Trader Joe locations have fertilized eggs. You can call your local one and ask them. And I've read lots of success stories of hatching those eggs. Good luck! :)

    Have you looked on craigslist? That is where I find all my local eggs. I think only California and maybe Arizona TJs have fertile eggs, though some other grocery stores may have them, I haven't found any in Oregon : (
