    I am looking to order hatching eggs. I want to order Silkies and Easter Eggers, possibly Bantam Cochins and Marans. What places have really high quality eggs that ship? Thank You [​IMG]

    I was looking for hatching eggs earlier this year... and I found wonderful eggs right here on byc [​IMG]

    Since February I've hatched Olive Eggers, Mottled Javas, Copper Black Marans, Mille Fleur Cochins, Turkens all of these from one BYCer!... and I now have Frizzle Cochins and Frizzle Polish in the incubator also from fellow BYCers. [​IMG] Warning... I have found that once you start hatching... you might have trouble stopping.

    Have you checked out the auction section here? You'll get better quality eggs for the most part from BYC members than you will from a hatchery.

    Quote:If you've never incubated you'd be better off to try and find some local fertilized eggs to learn the ins and outs of incubating and hatching before you invest in shipped hatching eggs. Shipped eggs come with a whole set of issues that can sometimes make them very much a gamble to hatch.

    I agree with Katy. I'm on my 5th hatch this spring, and it's the local eggs. I started with shipped eggs. 2 batches did ok, 2 did awful. Finally got a clue with this last batch and they are doing very well.
