    I know it is a long shot on such short notice but I finally was able to get my incubator to hold the temperature late last night...I had signed up for the BYC NYD Hatch-Along but didn't think I was going to get the incubator regulated but by some miracle I finally lucked out...I would need to set them tomorrow at noon. Does anyone know of someone who might have some eggs which I could purchase? I posted in the wanted section and I am watching Craig's list but I don't know anyone in San Diego yet because this is my first attempt at hatching. If anyone has any advice or suggestions please let me know. Thanks! matt

    In clutch, you can get fertile hatching eggs for Trader Joes. Either have them hold some for you from the delivery(often on Tuesday so that would be perfect for the NYD Hatch) or search the display for the ones with the longest sell my date.

    Good luck with the NYD Hatch!

    Thank you so much for the advice about Trader Joes! I am subscribed to the thread for TJ but hadn't read far enough to know whether the people setting the eggs were having any luck but there is a TJs about a mile from here so I will check it out tomorrow morning. Thanks!
