Hello everyone. My husband and I have purchased our first home and we're planting our roots here in Sumter, SC. We have about 2.5 acres in the county with a grape vineyard, and we can't wait to own chickens, peafowl, and some goats. My daughter is getting ready for her first science fair project, and we're thinking this is a great excuse/opportunity/motivator for us to finally have chickens! We're wondering if anyone in the area might have 3-6 fertilized eggs for hatching (looking for brown egg layers) for purchase or free if you're happy to donate. We don't mind driving to get them up to an hour commute. My husband works in Bethune. We're hoping to get started on this project soon....within the next week or two. I'm sure I'm more excited than our kids.
