    Hey, fellow Rhode Islanders! This is not very relevant but does anyone know of a good place to get fertilized eggs that are not shipped? Just asking because I have had two unsuccessful hatches both from shipped eggs. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You may want to hop over to the Connecticut thread-- Beth G has great reviews of her birds, and I think she does eggs as well. Also Jimmythechicken has some eggs, I think. I'm a Rhode Islander transplanted to CT. [​IMG]

    Anyone going to the Northeastern Poultry Conference? It's Jan 14th & 15th in Springfield, Mass. There will be a BYC table there, where BYCers can meet up and take a load off. Anyone willing to field questions at the table from the general masses for an hour or more is eligible for a 6 month GFM upgrade -PM Stoopid for details.

    Hope to see you there! I'll be in my newly acquired blue (and man, is it blue!) BYC hoodie. -Martha
