    Exactly why I don't buy eggs anymore, I'll take a young trio all day and the cost should be comparable. Though I will still import and export eggs as it is the only way at times. But in state I see no reason to.

    I have some hens proving their smarts. A couple hens allowed to free-range have figured out how to get into empty breeding pens through the access holes I have. They get inside to use the nest provided as they seem preferable to nesting in high weeds. They can even find the nest after I move the pen.

    I've actually done pretty well with shipped eggs for the amount of chicks I've got and price paid. Just recently haven't been having much luck. The other thing is live birds in my opinion might be picked over. I know that's not always the case but u can't pick over eggs lol. Luck of the draw.

    very true and if you are lucky enough that they don't get too banged around in shipping you well fair better than getting what someone else doesn't want or need. Though like they say one mans trash is anothers treasure. The blood may do better in different breeding program.
