    A girl in the 4-H club my mom and I run is in kindergarten class and they are hoping to hatch eggs after their spring break. Unfortunately, I only have small roosters and big hens and no gaurantee of fertile eggs! So I am wondering if anyone might be able to donate some eggs for this girl's class to hatch. It doesn't matter what they are of even if they are mixed. They do have a home for them once the chicks are hatched, unless the donator specifies they would like the chicks back. She didn't give me a number of how many she needs, but probably no less than a dozen so they have a good chance of hatching some!

    We are located in northern New Jersey by the Delaware watergap. Our club name is Feather's N' Fur. Feel free to send me an email at [email protected].

    Thanks in advance!

    I've got duck eggs, as many as you want, if you are interested.

    If you would like some Nankins I would be happy to send a group of eggs for the kids at my expense. They can see some of our birds on the website rdrfarm.com

    Is that after Easter? I'm in Stillwater and would be happy to donate. I should have EE eggs and silkie eggs by then.

    Wow, you guys are soo awesome for the quick and generous replies!

    Franciscreek, I will ask them if they would be interested in nankins! I will also send along your website.

    Sumatra, I will also mention you have duck eggs! I think this is the first time they are hatching in the class so I'm not sure if they just want to stick with chickens, but I will certainly ask.

    Lmiller49,
    I will also pass along your info as well and I will be sure to get back to you!

    Lynda,
    Would you be able to send me your email address that I could pass along to the 4-H mom? (And gee, you are tempting ME! I wish I had more time this summer so I could buy some eggs from you and hatch! Let me know how your hatch turns out! I just loveee the breed)

    Justmeandtheflock,
    I'm actually not sure when their spring break is, but I can ask. You are also really close to where most of my 4-Hers live. It would be really neat for the kids to see green EE eggs and those funny little silkie chicks!

    I will certainly get back to you guys asap. If anyone interested in donating could send me their email address, that would be awesome. That way I could just send the information to the lady looking for the eggs. At the moment, I'm not sure if they just want twelve or if she wanted to try a couple different types.

    Thank you thank you! Ya'll are so awesome. [​IMG]
