    Hi there!

    I'm a first grade teacher in Colorado and I'm going to be hatching eggs for the first time. Any tips would be great! I'm trying to find where to get the eggs even.

    thanks,

    Celena:D

    Check out these web sites. Loads of information.

    Call your county extension agent. That office will know where to get free fertile eggs. If you ask, they may even line you up with a mentor for this project.

    Is your state land grant university near. The Agriculture Department may be able to help.

    Post in the Buy, Sell, Trade section that you want free fertile eggs for a school project. Put your area and eggs for school hatching in the title. You may met somebody very helpful real close by.

    Hope this helps.
